ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The state has been hit with a lawsuit claiming it discriminates against non-English speaking citizens and people without computer skills.
The complaint was made against the Department of Workforce Solutions which handles unemployment for the state.
Workers seeking unemployment benefits can only file online applications in English.
The complaint says that's a barrier to obtaining benefits in a state where a third of the population speaks Spanish at home.
The complaint also says the state agency has failed to inform people they can apply for benefits over the phone in Spanish or if they are unable to use a computer.
