SUPPLEMENTAL CASE: Chapter 5 Case: Discrimination Ruth Wittman, a black woman, was employed as an operator of a check reader- sorter machine in a bank. After two years on the job, Wittman was discharged for being habitually absent and tardy. She filed an official charge of discrimination with the district office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). She listed the following allegations. 1. Although the bank had terminated her employment because of excessively absenteeism, a white employee in her department, who had as many absences as she had, was not terminated or reprimanded by the department manager. 2. A white worker in the department was allowed to leave the building during working hours, whereas she was not. 3. A white employee was assigned lighter blocks of processing work. 4. She was restricted by the assistant department manager from having conversations with her coworkers. When she discussed this problem with the department manager, he did not seem to understand the problem and failed to correct it.
