Stop discrimination and retaliation!
I served as an ADR federal mediator in the New Orleans field office for the EEOC. I am a white male who has been discriminated and retaliated against by three members of the Houston EEOC. Those who are associated with this discriminatory behavior are African-American, and Hispanic. The discrimination and retaliation was committed by Jennifer Ortiz-Prather and enabled by Martin Ebel and A.J. Ruff. While I support the mission of the EEOC, these three employees do not represent what the EEOC stands for. I am now in the process of filing a civil lawsuit in U.S. Federal Court and I am hoping that you will support my efforts to stop discriminatory and retaliatory behavior. These discriminatory and retaliatory actions were committed by the very people who work for the agency that is supposed to be protecting our rights from the illegal practices that they have committed!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Additionally, while I was still employed, I filed an initial harassment and discrimination complaint; however, I was ironically discharged just four weeks later! Filing a charge of discrimination is a protected activity, and no person is supposed to be subjected to discipline after making a complaint. The law clearly protects those who use the complaint process; otherwise no one would ever utilize the system. I have started the process of writing several federal politicians, including Louisiana Senator David Vitter, who has asked the EEOC to provide his office with an explanation regarding this issue. I plan to take various steps in the future to correct this injustice and hold those responsible accountable for their actions. I hope you consider assisting me with this matter; otherwise you could be their next victim.
