requiring staff to talk in English
Newshub has seen a document from a New World store in Palmerston North that required staff to talk in only English on the shop floor.
Foodstuffs said the intent was to make everyone feel included but the Race Relations Commissioner said it was discriminatory and even against the law.
New World Broadway, located in the heart of Palmerston North, is a bustling supermarket that on social media at least appears to endorse the use of other languages like te reo Māori - they love it, in fact.
