Discrimination suit

Three former Hispanic employees are suing Target Corp. for discrimination and retaliation, citing a training document reminding managers that not all Hispanics eat tacos and burritos, dance to salsa or wear sombreros.

The lawsuit was filed June 24 in California's Yolo County.

It alleges that Caucasian managers at a warehouse in Woodland regularly used racial slurs when addressing Hispanic workers. It cites a document featuring common stereotypes and tips on how to manage Hispanic workers.

A Target spokeswoman wouldn't comment on the lawsuit itself but says the Minneapolis-based company was sorry for the content of the document. She says it was not part of any "formal or company-wide training" and was used only at one distribution center.

The lawsuit also alleges that Target terminated many of its older Hispanic employees.
