Good afternoon.Earlier today, we were made aware of racially-charged comments made by an employee on social media while on the job. Within the hour, the employee in question was terminated, and we released the following statement:
Mathy Construction Company is aware of social media posts made by an employee. We are disgusted by the views expressed and the language used. We have dealt with this matter, and the employee in question is no longer employed with our company. The statements in the posts do not reflect the core values or principles of Mathy Construction Company. We are truly sorry for any harm or disrespect that this may have caused.
The company will not tolerate the use of inappropriate comments and dialogue that is inherently offensive and unwelcome. As we move forward with these important conversations within the company, we expect everyone to be engaged, remain respectful, and keep an open mind. We all need to come together to be part of the solution for the greater good, and not be part of the problem. Your words matter and we hope you use your voice to be productive and positive during this time.
