LOS ANGELES , March 19, 2012 () – A lawsuit filed against The Coca-Cola Co. states that the company racially discriminated against 16 of its black and Hispanic production workers, The New York Daily News reported March 16.

According to the suit filed in New York’s Brooklyn Federal Court, Coca-Cola relegated minorities to less favorable assignments, unfair disciplinary action and retaliation for complaining. The plaintiffs were also subjected to racial epithets, all of which went ignored by the company, the lawsuit contends.

Coca-Cola spokesman Toney Anaya said the company does not tolerate discrimination in the workplace and that the allegations are being investigated.
