It could be. But then so could many insults. One of the worst and yet very common examples is the MF phrase but I have never heard of a court the use of that phrase to be guilty of defamation.
What LONDONDERRY described last year could have been considered defamation. And the manager's comments were affecting LONDONDERRY's reputation among coworkers in a demonstrable way.

That said, the situation at his workplace seems to have improved a bit since last June - although there is obviously room for more improvement.

As far as we know at the moment, the comments have only been made directly to the OP. That's not defamation or discrimination no matter how you cut it.

Last year they were made in front of coworkers. I agree that it appears the comments are just made to him alone now - at least LONDONDERRY has not indicated otherwise.
