National Origin Suit Filed Against JP Morgan Chase

Shivana Persad is suing JPMorgan Chase bank for national origin discrimination. Persad is claiming that her boss, who is Guyanese, consistently discriminated against her because she was Trinidadian.

According to Persad, her boss would often discriminate against the Trinidadian employees, calling them "Trinis" and often said that Trinidadians are "lazy" and "nickel-and-dime workers." She further alleges that Guyanese co-workers received favorable schedules and that the she had to work six-day weeks in order to overcome her boss' prejudices.

Persad further claims that she was fired after she had complained to Human Resources that she was not paid for the hours she had accumulated for overtime.
