Denver (AP) -- A federal lawsuit alleges that a hotel in Western
Colorado fired workers because the employers believed white and
non-hispanic workers were indolent. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is seeking back pay for a group of employees federal officials say were fired beginning in August from a Hampton Inn franchise in Craig, Colo. The lawsuit was filed last week but federal officials announced it Monday. The hotel is operated by Century Shree Corporation and Century Rama, Inc. The hotel referred questions to a Wyoming attorney, who did not immediately return a call for comment. Federal officials are also seeking mandatory antidiscrimination
classes for the companies.
