A group of Colorado janitors claim discrimination at their workplace has led to unsafe and unfair working conditions.
The 12 custodial workers speak Spanish, but managers at the Auraria Higher Education Center in Denver communicated to the workers only in English. That's led to workplace injuries and unfair changes to their work schedules, resulting in pay decreases, the workers' lawyer told The Denver Post.
The janitors' discrimination complaint, filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleges the lack of communication in their native language amounts to national origin discrimination. Do they have a case?
