LuLac and Leon's Frozen Custard Resolve Their Issues
LuLac and Leon’s Frozen Custard have resolved their issues, according to a press release.
Protests had popped up at the popular south side custard stand after a customer posted that when he placed an order in Spanish the worker replied that she's not allowed to take orders in Spanish.
LULAC of Wisconsin State Director Dr. Arturo Martinez released a statement:
“Following our consultation with the owners of Leon’s Frozen Custard and its counsel, we are pleased that Leon’s Frozen Custard is concluding a thorough review of all personnel policies to ensure they are in compliance with existing EEOC guidance and civil rights law. We are also pleased that Leon’s has documented their policy which allows Leon’s Frozen Custard employees to speak to their customers in the customer’s desired language if the employee is able. We appreciate the goodwill ownership has demonstrated in working with us to bring this issue to a close to the benefit of our community.”
