Hispanic employees file suit against Target for discrimination


Fresno, Calif. -- Three former Target employees have filed suit against Target Corp., alleging that the retailer discriminated against them for being Hispanic.

The trio, which filed the suit on June 24 in Yolo County, Calif., cited a training document that reminded Target store managers that not all Hispanics eat tacos and burritos, dance to salsa or wear sombreros. They also alleged that Woodland, Calif., warehouse workers used racial slurs when addressing Hispanic workers.

Target has not commented, other than to say that it was sorry for the content of the document and that it was not part of a "formal or company-wide training" and was used only at one distribution center.
