A Boston teacher won a $1.7 million jury award after raising concerns of workplace discrimination. The jury awarded the sum after finding that the school retaliated against the teacher—the only black male teacher at the school—after he alleged discrimination. The teacher was hired part-time in 2008 and raised concerns about the school’s racially discriminatory hiring practices. He was hired full-time in 2012, but was fired in 2016.
After several years of legal proceedings, a Suffolk Superior Court jury finally found that the headmaster and other school officials retaliated against him. The jury award includes a sum specifically earmarked for the injuries he incurred, including severe depression and anxiety.
