Discriminatory Document

Three former Target Corp. employees are suing the company over a set of “multi-cultural tips” that were allegedly more racist than enlightened. According to Robert Gonzales, Pedro Garcia-Ayala and Bulmaro Fabian, Target provided its warehouse managers with a document called “Organization Effectiveness, Employee and Labor Relations Multi-Cultural Tips,” which allegedly informed managers that not all Hispanic employees eat tacos and burritos, wear sombreros or dance to salsa music.

The handbook reportedly contained other gems of cultural wisdom, including “[Hispanic employees] may say ‘OK, OK’ and pretend to understand, when they do not, just to save face.” The document was purportedly less-than-successful, since the plaintiffs claim that their mostly white managers regularly subjected them to racial slurs. The three former employees are suing Target for harassment, age and race discrimination and retaliation.
