The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a hostile workplace lawsuit against the Hilton Lisle/Naperville Hotel. The EEOC claims that the hotel’s executive chef bullied Hispanic employees, calling them derogatory names such as “wetbacks, f—— Mexicans and stupid Mexicans.”
The EEOC is seeking monetary damages of up to $300,000 per victim, an injunction preventing any further workplace bullying, and staff training to prevent future harassment.
“We completely deny these outrageous and completely false allegations,” said Hilton General Manager Richard Brink.
