Hispanic employees file suit against Target for discrimination

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Fresno, Calif. — Three former Target employees have filed suit against Target Corp., alleging that the retailer discriminated against them for being Hispanic.

The trio, which filed the suit on June 24 in Yolo County, Calif., cited a training document that reminded Target store managers that not all Hispanics eat tacos and burritos, dance to salsa or wear sombreros. They also alleged that Woodland, Calif., warehouse workers used racial slurs when addressing Hispanic workers.

Target has not commented, other than to say that it was sorry for the content of the document and that it was not part of a "formal or company-wide training" and was used only at one distribution center.

Report: Market Basket CEO faces termination by family-run board

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Boston — A report by the Boston Globe revealed that the fate of Market Basket CEO Arthur T. Demoulas lies in the hands of the grocery chain’s board of directors, as members are posted to fire Demoulas at a meeting of the board next week.

A longtime family feud has split the board in two, and both sides of the family-owned Demoulas Super Markets Inc. will face off in a meeting on Thursday, July 18, to determine whether or not Demoulas will be removed from office.

According to the Globe, the latest dispute in the 20-year battle involves accusations by a first cousin – who leads the controlling group on the board — that Demoulas steamrolled directors and spent money recklessly.

Demoulas, 58, has disputed the allegations, and has fired back with his own assertions that his familial opponents have pushed for the company to borrow heavily in order to finance payouts to shareholders of more than $1.5 billion.

The matter is being heard in Suffolk Superior Court.
