It also stated that Hispanics “may say ‘OK, OK’ and pretend to understand, when they do not, just to save face.”
Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said she could not comment on the allegations in the lawsuit, because the Minneapolis-based company has not yet been served with the complaint.
She said the company doesn’t “tolerate or condone discrimination in any form” and has policies and procedures in place to prevent unfair treatment.
The company, however, has apologized for the content of the training document. Snyder said in a statement that the instructional guide wasn’t part of any “formal or company-wide training” and was only used at one distribution center.
“The content of the document referenced is not representative of who Target is,” Snyder said. “We take accountability for its contents and are truly sorry.”
Target Corp. is the nation’s second-largest discount chain with 2013 revenue of $73.3 billion.
The lawsuit, filed June 24, seeks unspecified damages.
