Breaking News: DOJ Whistleblowers Charge Assistant AG Thomas Perez with Discrimination, Retaliation
Posted by Larry Doyle on July 12, 2013 9:16 PM |
I have welcomed highlighting the stories of many heroic whistleblowers (Peter Sivere, Mark Mensack, Gary Aguirre, Joe Sciddurlo, David Weber) who have been subjected to just such heinous treatment by the powerful and privileged.
I welcome doing so again. In a breaking press release, we learn that a number of whistleblowers from inside the Department of Justice are sounding the siren on Assistant Attorney General (and the prospective Secretary of Labor) Tom Perez.
What do the whistleblowers allege?
Treatment that any employee within any organization would deign as reason for suit, including: discrimination, retaliation, and Equal Employment Opportunity violations.
And this individual, Mr. Perez, has been nominated to be the nation’s labor leader? What is wrong with that picture?
Numerous individual employees within the DOJ have corroborated these charges. I welcome sharing the release. Please click on the document image to access the full pdf:
We can only hope that those considering Perez’ nomination for Secretary of Labor will take a prudent pause to fully investigate these charges.
Would only seem appropriate that Mr. Perez be classified under the heading: Friends Like This Who Needs Enemies.
I thank the reader who brought this story to my attention.
