In a bizarre twist on civil rights legislation, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Barack Obama is filing a federal lawsuit against a Wisconsin company for its requirement that employees use English at work.

The legal action came after a number of Hispanic and Asian workers were fired because they could not — or would not — speak English, a decision the EEOC said amounted to discrimination.

Using the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the commission found that the “linguistic characteristics of a national origin group” are included in the protections contained therein.
