KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - The Montana Human Rights Bureau has found a company unlawfully retaliated against a black employee who complained about multiple racist remarks made in the workplace.

The Missoulian reported (https://bit.ly/2pDFx9u ) Wednesday that TeleTech Services Corp. is accused of mishandling complaints of racism made by former employee Kiondra Bullock.

Bullock filed a complaint with the bureau in June 2016. She says among the racist remarks was a former co-worker’s suggestion that Bullock’s grandchildren could be slaves on a colleague’s plantation.

Bullock was written up for yelling at the co-worker who made the remark. The co-worker, Alex Goodnight, was never punished.

Bureau Investigator Tam Newby spoke to Goodnight, who said he never apologized because the company decided he “did nothing wrong.”

A contested hearing before the Office of Administrative Hearings is forthcoming.
