Coalition For Change (C4C) Releases Report to President Biden on EEOC's Flawed EEO Complaint System

Coalition For Change (C4C) Releases Report to President Biden on EEOC's Flawed EEO Complaint System

PR Newswire

C4C's latest report highlights a concerning issue: The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is not adequately protecting public servants responsible for delivering safe and efficient programs and services to the public.

WASHINGTON, June 6, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C) today released its report titled: The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's Unmet Mission: Challenges Impacting Prompt, Fair, and Impartial Processing of Federal Employees' Equal Employment Opportunity Complaints.

"Our report highlights twenty-one (21) challenges victims of federal officials' discriminatory acts confront when navigating the protracted EEO complaint system," said Tanya Ward Jordan, C4C President, and Founder. "Our report also addresses EEO reform measures we shared with Representative Elijah Cummings. As a result, Congress passed the Elijah Cummings Federal Employee Antidiscrimination Act of 2020. Still, the EEOC knowingly fails to curb discrimination in the federal workplace. Therefore, we unite with the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees and the Caucus of African American Leaders to raise awareness about a flawed EEOC-led federal complaint system."

According to David Grogan, a member of the Caucus of African American Leaders and a retired Supervisory Deputy United States Marshal, the C4C report exposes how the EEOC permits discrimination against the Black community. Grogan was the initial lead plaintiff in the $300,000,000 class action lawsuit against the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) asserting the law enforcement agency discriminates against African Americans. The complaint was filed in the District Court for the District of Columbia. Grogan said, "The EEOC and federal agencies' Office of General Counsel disregard Black families' livelihoods. Their deliberate actions against those opposing discrimination are akin to a domestic terrorist attack on employees, especially Black employees filing legitimate EEO claims. I hope the next U.S. President will end this apparent ongoing war on Blacks."

The C4C report received praise from Lawrence Lucas, President Emeritus of the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees. "The agency lacks accountability and steers away from its mandate of correcting unlawful discrimination and protecting its victims," said Lucas. "Instead, the EEOC has become part of the problem. It lacks the courage and commitment to safeguard employees, like women firefighters in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service, who oppose abuse in the workplace. The EEOC's lack of commitment to justice forces many into court and leaves many to die while waiting for justice."

Paulette Taylor, the C4C's Civil and Human Rights Chair and a former class agent of a race-based class action against the U.S. Social Security Administration where discrimination was found against a class of Black female employees, expressed her concerns about the EEOC's inefficiency. "Complainants challenging federal workplace bias have lost their families, homes, friends, careers, and income. Many have waited a decade or more to finalize their case within the EEOC-led complaint system, which is unacceptable. The C4C report highlights the need for an effective leader in the EEOC's Office of Federal Operations," said Taylor.
