Alpert, 53, of Marlboro, who is Jewish, alleges that he works in a religiously hostile work environment. The 27-year employee says a he has been a victim of a co-worker who "spits on the floor as he sees me" and religious slurs and threats, which he says were condoned by supervisors, according to the complaint. ..The Times denied the allegations; the EEOC is now trying to broker a settlement between Alpert and the paper.
The commission also found cause supporting Alpert's allegations that co-workers referred to him using religious epithets, often in the presence of managers, who did nothing to stop it.
The case could become larger because the EEOC also found evidence that other minority men at the plant were discriminated against.
