On October 29, 2017, Miller-Motte College's parent corporation, Delta Career Corporation, was found liable for discriminating against Ravelle Pearsall, an African-American former cosmetology instructor at its campus in Wilmington, NC.
The arbitrator, a former federal magistrate judge, found that Delta Career Corporation discriminated against Ms. Pearsall due to her race and in retaliation for her reporting race discrimination internally; and ordered it to pay her $324,000 for her damages and attorney’s fees. The case involved some blatantly racists comments and behavior by the department chair who referred to Ms. Pearsall and her infant daughter as monkeys. After Ms. Pearsall followed company policy and reported the racial harassment, Delta Career Corporation retaliated against Ms. Pearsall and fired her.
Delta had an Alternative Dispute Resolution Policy that waived Ms. Pearsall’s right to a jury trial, so my Charlotte-based firm, Van Kampen Law, pursued her claims in arbitration. But, now that that Delta Career Corporation has lost the arbitration it is still refusing to honor the award and pay Ms. Pearsall what it owes her.
On November 29th, my firm filed a Petition to Confirm the Arbitration Award with the Eastern District of NC federal court in Wilmington and still Delta Career Corporation is running from responsibility.
Ms. Pearsall is on the verge of bankruptcy and needs help to force Delta Career Corporation to do the right thing and honor the arbitration award.
