WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans expect to receive basic rights, equality and freedoms granted by the Bill of Rights and protected by the U.S. legal system. In her new book, "Surviving General Motors with Multiple Sclerosis: Questions of Conscience, Morality and Leadership" (now available through AuthorHouse), Zohar McMillan details the legal battle that ensued when she believed these basic rights were violated during her employment at a General Motors Corp. plant. For years, McMillan was a dedicated GM employee; she loved her job as a journeyman electrician. Her experience changed drastically, however, when she was reassigned to the Pontiac Assembly Center. McMillan recalls disturbing details of what she claims was unrelenting harassment by co-workers and superiors alike. Included in her list of allegations are discrimination due to her Multiple Sclerosis, denial of proper safety rights and medical attention, threats of physical violence by a general foreman, extremely disturbing racial slurs and gender-based insults. Taking legal action, McMillan brought the case before a circuit court in order to bring the trial before a jury, but the judge ruled in favor of GM. "After receiving the judge's written opinion, I went into shock," McMillan says. She decided to appeal. She supplied her attorney with incidences from journals she kept and a right to sue letter issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. McMillan hopes the experiences chronicled in "Surviving General Motors with Multiple Sclerosis" will shed light on the injustices that still occur in the workplace. "We have a constitution which all Americans are to abide by, including corporations ... ," she says. "We need to reclaim our courts." Michigan, the heart of the automobile industry, has been home to McMillan her entire life. A true survivor, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 12 years ago. "Surviving General Motors with Multiple Sclerosis" is her first book. Visit http://www.survivinggmwithms.com for more information.
