Elgin Police Department hostile work environment lawsuit

Phillipp Brown, a police officer at the Elgin Police Department, filed a racial harassment lawsuit against the city of Elgin and police officers Sean Rafferty and James Barnes.

Brown, who is African-American, claims that his supervisor, Sean Rafferty, who is white, created a racially hostile work environment for African-American police officers.

According to the complaint, the racially hostile work environment included “frequent positive references to the Ku Klux Klan” and “the use of offensive racist language toward and in the presence of African American EPD officers.”
