Fremont Toyota sued by EEOC

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit today charging Fremont Toyota with singling out Afghan-American employees for harrassment.

According to an EEOC press release (lawsuit hasn’t posted online) the company’s general manager singled out four Afghan salesmen during a sales meeting, calling them “terrorists,” and asserting that he was the dealership’s dictator just like the dictator that rules Afghanistan.

The complaint also charges that an Afghan manager was fired after he spoke in defense of the salesmen, according to the EEOC.
