The head of the Greater Springfield NAACP said allegations in a new lawsuit against MGM Springfield are concerning. A former employee of the casino filed the suit. Chelan Brown said company officials retaliated against her after she raised concerns about fraudulent reports being submitted on diversity hiring to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. Brown said she was demoted and eventually terminated. Bishop Talbert Swan said if it turns out the claims are true, it would be unfortunate."We do have a host agreement that MGM has committed to meet certain levels in terms of its hiring," he said.
