In the second federal action within five days involving charges of racist graffiti at company worksites, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Chicago District Office Jan. 11 filed a complaint in federal court charging an employer with fostering a racially hostile work environment by failing to clean up or prevent the occurrence of racially offensive graffiti.
