EMPLOYMENT employees at a Colorado casino who claimed that they were discriminated against by being forced to speak English only-even on lunch breaks-settled with the casino for $1.5 million on July 18. In 1998, members of the housekeeping staff at Colorado Central Station Casino in Blackhawk, Colo., claimed that supervisors imposed an English-only rule. The mostly Spanish-speaking staff endured name-calling and shouting by their superiors for speaking Spanish, the suit alleged. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Las Vegas-based parent company Anchor Coin Inc. on behalf of 24 housekeeping workers, for Title VII discrimination based on national origin. Eleven employees then intervened. Anchor Coin asserted that the casino never implemented the English-only rule. EEOC v. Anchor Coin Inc., No. 01-CV-564 (D. Colo.). PLAINTIFFS’ ATTORNEYS: Nelson G.
