Fox News recently came under fire after 11 of its employees hit the organisation with a class action lawsuit alleging widespread racial discrimination, writes Simon Wilkins.

Sadly, Fox News is not the only organisation that has been accused of allowing this sort of misconduct. For years, the cultures of some organisations have been rife with discriminating behaviours which by no means should be tolerated by any employee.

With widespread discriminatory violations continuing to be committed across organisations, the rule of law is directly related to the implementation and enforcement of rights, and respect for the rule of law is inextricably linked to the way companies engage in business, and the ethics of workplace relations.
