The EEOC has filed a second lawsuit against Albertson’s, the Idaho-based grocery store chain, for retaliating against workers in its Aurora distribution center.

The first lawsuit, filed in 2006, claimed the center harbored a racially hostile environment against blacks and Hispanics, including threats of violence and drawings of swastikas and nooses.

The new lawsuit alleges Albertson’s punished workers in Aurora for complaining. Workers say the retaliation included denying them medical care, rejecting them for promotions and transfers, imposing unfair discipline and firing them for having complained.
