Racial Bias Suit

What if you were discriminated against as in by-passed over for promotion, payed less than certain group of workers and treated unfairly in evaluation and disciplinary proceedings.

A legal suit is your solution! Some 20,000 people will benefit from a legal suit when the court instructs FedEx Express to pay a settlement sum of US$53.5m for those who are working for or those who have worked for FedEx since 1999 in the states of California, Washington, Utah and Hawaii. Specifically, the African-American and Hispanic workers were racially discriminated. This worked out to a sum of US$2,675 per person. (source: Reuters)

Wondering whether such racial bias suit could be brought up in Malaysian courts. Of course, you will need the expertise of such litigation firm, Altshuler Berzon LLP, from USA in bringing such class suit. Don't think any legal firms in Malaysia will jeopardise their business future fighting for such justice.
