Minneapolis Restaurant Settles EEOC Lawsuit, Agrees to Hire Ombuds

A trendy Twin-City nightspot, Chino Latino, has agreed to pay $325,000 to settle a discrimination lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that alleged it mistreated its Hispanic employees. According to a court filing, the restaurant also must hire a Spanish-speaking ombudsman to hear any future concerns, set up a complaint hot line and train managers on discrimination laws. A spokesman said the company already has someone in mind for the ombudsman position. (Star Tribune.)
