Three former Target employees are suing the nation’s second-largest discount chain for discrimination and retaliation, citing alleged racial slurs from managers and a training document that included stereotypical portrayals of Hispanics.
The lawsuit, filed recently in Northern California’s Yolo County, says that workers who complained about the conditions at a distribution center in Woodland were fired.
The complaint alleges that white managers regularly used racial epithets when speaking with Hispanic workers.
Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said she could not comment on the allegations in the lawsuit. She said the company doesn’t “tolerate or condone discrimination in any form.”
