EEOC names Sandia Drilling boss Justin Smith in racial harassment lawsuit

The EEOC announced that it has filed a racial harassment lawsuit against Sandia Drilling Company, Ltd, L.L.P. and Sandia Drilling of Texas, L.L.C.

According to the EEOC lawsuit, on an oil rig in northeast Texas, a supervisor/driller, Justin Smith, offensively taunted a Hispanic subordinate on almost a daily basis for dating a black woman by calling him a “n—–r” and a “n—–r lover,” degraded him by yelling out that he worked “like a wetback,” and often threatened to “whip [his] ass with a 24 [-inch pipe wrench].”

The EEOC also alleges that the employee was fired soon after reporting the harassment to a company superintendant.
