Target Facing Complaints on Hiring Practices
The NAACP and the community organization group TakeAction Minnesota accused Target Corp. of unfair hiring practices in 10 formal complaints filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The NAACP and the community group allege the retailer's hiring practices discriminate against applicants with criminal records. In a news conference in Minneapolis, the groups accused Target of denying people with criminal records job interviews, even when the alleged crime was old, expunged or irrelevant to the prospective job.
