EEOC Sues Hotel Franchise for Discrimination Against Whites

October 9th, 2011 by JBWK

In an uncommon lawsuit, the EEOC has alleged that a hotel franchise in Colorado illegally discriminated against employees and applicants based on their race: white.

The employer, according to the EEOC, subscribed to a stereotype that non-Hispanics are “indolent” and therefore discriminated against them in making employment decisions.

While it’s a fairly atypical lawsuit for the EEOC to pick up, it’s a good a reminder that nondiscrimination laws apply to all races, genders, religions, and national origins.
