The case involves a manager who appears to dislike Hispanics and allegedly favors black employees. Testimony included claims the manager frequently used slurs like “wetback,” and “bean eaters.’ In meetings, she was said to have openly stated she wanted to get rid of the Hispanics in the company. For example, one group of claims going to trial involves several Hispanic workers who allegedly fell asleep on the job and were terminated. Unfortunately for the company, several supervisors testified that the manager had urged them to find ways to get rid of Hispanic workers, including falsely accusing them of sleeping at work.
The EEOC has also launched a website in Spanish to assist Hispanic workers.
