Hispanic, from the Latin word for “Spain,” is arguably the broader term, potentially encompassing all Spanish-speaking peoples in both hemispheres and emphasizing the common denominator of language among communities that sometimes have little else in common.
Of the two, only Hispanic can be used in referring to Spain and its history and culture; a native of Spain residing in the United States is a Hispanic, not a Latino, and you cannot substitute Latino in the phrase the Hispanic influence on native Mexican cultures without garbling the meaning.
A further objection to Hispanic is that it is the term most often used in formal or official contexts—as on government applications or census forms—and as such bears the stamp of an establishment that to some seems far removed from the community (or communities) these words refer to.

The class consists of former and current Hispanic FDIC employees -- possibly thousands of affected employees throughout the continental United States, Puerto Rico and related territories -- and encompasses all such employees who "were not recruited, promoted, or assigned to positions of greater responsibility" by the Agency at any time from 1990 to date.
