I’m Worried My Boss Is Discriminating Against My Coworker
I have a colleague, who I’ll call Zach, who’s really good at his job and has a lot of knowledge about his specialized area, and currently he’s the only person we have working in that area. He’s not a native English speaker but his English is good, although he has a medium-strong accent. Also, he happens not to be white, and the other employees in this department are. I hope accent and race are irrelevant here, but I’m not sure.
