An engineer who specialized in airplanes filed a lawsuit against Boeing, claiming he had to work in a hostile work environment, News 4 WOAI learned Tuesday.
According to the lawsuit, Zuhair Ahmed was working at Boeing here in San Antonio when the September 11th attacks happened in 2001. Ahmed claims after the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, his co-workers began making fun of his religion and race.
Ahmed claims in the lawsuit, co-workers and supervisors at Boeing began harassing and discriminating against him because of his African and Sudanese origin. Ahmed is also Muslim, according to the suit.
In March 2005, Ahmed claims in the lawsuit he was fired after a work-related injury.
Boeing officials told News 4 WOAI they cannot comment on the lawsuit because it has not been served yet.
The company has policies in place prohibiting harassment and discrimination, Boeing officials said. [Link]
