Target Target Sued Over Offensive 'Multi Cultural Tips' Document[1]Target (TGT[2]) finds itself in a lawsuit after a training document used at one of its warehouse’s offended employees.

The lawsuit was filed by three former warehouse workers[3], who claim that a document used to train managers on how to deal with Hispanic workers is racist.

The document, titled  ”Organization Effectiveness, Employee and Labor Relations Multi-Cultural Tips,” stated the following, reports The Huffington Post.

“It is never Target’s intent to offend our team members or guests and we apologize,” Molly Snyder, a spokeswoman for Target, told The Huffington Post.

The plaintiffs Robert Gonzalez, Bulmaro Fabian and Pedro Garcia-Ayala, also claim that managers frequently used racial slurs when addressing Hispanic employees, such as ”Only a ‘wetback’ can work this hard,” and ”You got to be Mexican to work like this,”, reports Courthouse News Service[4].
