En los EE.UU la compania de cosmeticos SEPHORA,
cuyo link esta puesto arriba, esta siendo demandada por un grupo de mujeres Latinas.
La alegacion es que Sephora, aunque las contrato por ser bilingues no les permite habla Español en el trabajo, a menos que no sea con un cliente.
Ni en su hora de almuerzo les permite hablar Español a sus trabajadores la compania Sephora.

A federal agency has sued an upscale cosmetics
company for allegedly discriminating against
Hispanic employees who spoke Spanish on their breaks.

The irony, according to the EEOC,
is the employees were hired for their
bilingual skills.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission filed a lawsuit Friday on behalf
of five Hispanic women who were told to stop
speaking Spanish at work unless helping a
Spanish-speaking customer.
The five woman who worked at Sephora's Rockefeller Center store said management mimicked their speech and accents and made discriminatory comments about Hispanic culture.

When the Rockefeller store closed in August 2002,
employees who spoke out against the alleged discrimination were not given positions at Sephora's other stores while all other workers were, the lawsuit said.
When the five women complained to the EEOC,
Sephora allegedly distributed a memo to its
supervisors reminding them of of Sephora's
English-only rule, according to the lawsuit.
"To have an English only rule at all times like
this is presumed discriminatory and breaks the law,"

said Raechel Adams, the EEOC attorney working the case.

"The irony is that it says in the employee handbook that speaking languages other than English is viewed as an asset."
At least three of the women were
fired from Sephora, the lawsuit alleges.
The two others left because the
workplace was too uncomfortable, said Adams.
The women are seeking back pay and compensatory
damages of up to $300,000 per person.
Sephora, one of the largest cosmetic chains in Europe, denied the charges.

"Sephora does not tolerate discrimination of any kind,"

Sephora said in an emailed statement.
"Furthermore, we do not have,
and never have had, an 'English-only'
rule in our workplace."
Sephora began opening large,
chic stores in the United States in 1998.
Today, it has more than 80 stores nationwide,
including seven in New York City and more than 350 in Europe.

Lawsuits against English only in the
workplace are on the rise, advocates
and the EEOC said.
"As more immigrants join the workforce,
we have seen a rise in this type of discrimination," said Larry Pincus, an

Querida Doris,
He leído cosas que has escrito que son brillantes.

En este caso le has errado al simpatizar con esta gente.

La compañía Sephora es una 'agada.
Pero, como empleador contrato empleados para que me ayuden a hacer negocio de la forma que yo crea conveniente.
Tengo derecho a exigirles que hablen el idioma oficial del pais.

Lo primero que piensa un empleador o sus supervisores cuando hablan en otro idioma es estos estan planeando como robarme.
Otra consideracion es quizas los clientes pienses que tengo en mi staff empleados ilegales.
O peor aun que piensen que este es un negocio de tal o cual nacionalidad.

Si les hicieron lugar a su denuncia fue porque dijeron que se les buraban de como hablaban y hacian comentarios despectivos sobre los hispanicos, cosa que es ilegal, pero vaya a saber si es verdad o no....
Este no es el primer caso que existe al respecto y la ley esta del lado del empleador que requiere que en el negocio se hable el idioma oficial.
