BROOKLYN - Two women are the latest people to come forward with discrimination claims against Macy's.
Maritza Hernandez and Maria Paez, who are both Hispanic, filed lawsuits accusing the department store of racial profiling. They say they were accused of shoplifting, forced to sign a confession and were not allowed to leave without paying a fee.
One of the women also claims that workers from the Macy's on Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn yelled racial names when they thought she was stealing.
Macy's said it would not comment on either case, but added that it does not tolerate discrimination of any kind, including racial profiling.
