Around the world an increasing volume of information is circulating on the Internet -- through chat rooms, message boards, email chain letters and websites.
Coca-Cola's policies are not applied uniformly or fairly. The Company's written and unwritten policies and practices regarding promotions do not require posting of all positions, but allow "management nomination," which amounts to little more than word of mouth recommendations, and other closed procedures, including the use of a high-potential list.
Even positions that are posted on the computerized job posting system may contain a notation that an internal candidate has already been identified.
Jobs are filled without being posted, candidates are handpicked in advance, and supervisors who make hiring decisions disregard the results of panel interviews and manipulate scores in order to ensure that their favorites are chosen.
As a result of this kind of discrimination, African-Americans are denied the opportunity to advance to the same level and at the same rate as equally qualified Caucasian employees. Few African-Americans advance to senior levels in the Company, especially when compared to the significant representation of African-Americans among salaried employees.
Indeed, although African-Americans make up about Inonly 7.
African-Americans in senior positions are concentrated in less powerful and non-revenue-generating areas. The Human Resources Division and the External Affairs Department a community relations office in the Corporate Affairs Division account for over half of the African-American senior management officials in the corporate headquarters, while high-level positions of significant influence in divisions such as Global Marketing, Finance, Information Systems and Technical Operations purchasing and production-related activities have virtually all Caucasian employees.
Only about five percent of high-level positions are held by African-American employees, but when Human Resources and Corporate Affairs are excluded from the calculation, that figure drops to 2.
African-American employees at Coca-Cola are involuntarily terminated at a much higher rate than Caucasian employees. Similar trends hold true for as well.
This discrimination represents a company-wide pattern and practice, rather than a series of isolated incidents. Defendant's written and unwritten policies and practices regarding evaluation, compensation and promotion subject the named Plaintiffs and the Class to ongoing disparate treatment.
Coca-Cola's actions constitute a continuing violation of the rights of the named Plaintiffs and the Class, and have been ongoing since April 22,and prior to that date. Although Coca-Cola has carefully cultivated African-Americans as consumers of its product by public pronouncements, strategic alliances, and specific marketing strategies, it has failed to place the same importance on its African-American employees.
Further, Defendant's efforts to target African-American consumers reflects stereotypical views of African-Americans who all live in the ghetto or perform low-skill or low pay jobs.
Coca-Cola's marketing staff have also discriminated against African-American marketing employees and advertising agencies. Defendant's outreach to consumers does nothing to address the racial disparities in compensation, promotions and evaluations that exist inside the Company.
