Ashwaubenon factory accused of discrimination

ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - The federal government is suing an Ashwaubenon factory, for allegedly firing workers who lacked proper English skills -- even though they didn't need them to do their jobs.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a complaint Monday against Wisconsin Plastics, a maker of metal and plastic products.

According to the EEOC, the affected Hmong and Hispanic workers had 10 minute observations of their ability to handle English -- and they were let go despite satisfactory ratings on their most recent performance reviews.

The lawsuit seeks punitive damages against the firm, plus payments to the former employees for lost wages.

Wisconsin Plastics called the allegations false, and there was nothing illegal about its employment decisions.
