Facebook Accused of Underrepresenting Black Worker in Employment Force, Unfair Performance Evaluation

Oscar Veneszee, Jr., a Black employee at Facebook, joined by two others who were denied jobs at the social network, has filed a complaint against the Facebook, claiming it discriminates against Black workers and applicants in hiring, evaluations, promotions and pay.

The charge was filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) by Oscar Veneszee, Jr., who has worked as an operations program manager at Facebook since 2017. Veneszee, Jr. claims he has not been fairly evaluated or promoted despite his ‘excellent performance’ at the company. Two other employees joined Veneszee’s complaint, saying they were unlawfully denied jobs at the company despite being qualified.




According to Veneszee’s complaint, filed on Thursday, “people of color and Black workers in particular remain underrepresented at all levels of Facebook and especially at the management and leadership levels. They do not feel respected or heard. And they do not believe that Black workers have an equal opportunity to advance their careers at Facebook.”

While there may be Black Lives Matter posters on Facebook’s walls, the complaint says, “Black workers don’t see that phrase reflecting how they are treated in Facebook’s own workplace.”

Facebook said in a statement it takes discrimination allegations seriously and investigates every case.

“We believe it is essential to provide all employees with a respectful and safe working environment.”

— Facebook spokeswoman Pamela Austin

Black workers account for only 3.8% of all U.S. Facebook employees and 1.5% of all U.S. technical workers at the company, according statista.com. In 2019, Hispanics comprised 5.2 percent of Facebook’s employees. Other large large Silicon Valley firms show similar statistics.
