Shift Training Programs to Electronic Format

Employee training is obviously vital to the success of our workforce, but every year many training documents are still printed on paper, in excess—witness the pile of unused EEO folders in our mailroom, destined for the recycling bin—which is incredibly wasteful. The paradigm has shifted, folks, and while there is no replacement for classroom learning, it’s time to upgrade the government training programs to be more... more »

Penalize Frivolous EEO Lawsuits

Employees who are fired for misconduct or poor performance often submit frivolous EEO complaints. They do this as retaliation, or in an effort to recieve (an unjustified) settlement due to the enormous expense that the government must absorb to investigate these claims. It is often cheaper for the government to pay a settlement even when no discrimination has actually occured. When such a claim is found to be clearly... more »

Bring common sense to EEO handling within HUD

It appears that HUD uses the EEOC motion/hearing process to provide training to their new Office of General Council attorneys. According to the last EEO office studies the Agency spends $194,000K+ per case by the time it gets to the EEOC hearing stage. The EEOC must have costs incurred by the time judges are involved too. Many, if not most, cases that I have been involved with as a union official could have been settled... more »

Management should be rated on numbers of grievances & EEO suits

Federal managers suffer no consequences for being bad managers. The number of grievances and EEO suits filed is a red alert that something's going wrong in the office. These should be part of a manager's record, and a grievance/suit lost or settled by the agency should automatically result in a suspension of management duties.

Scrap Affirmative Action

'Treat everyone fairly,' should be the only workplace law required.
Provide protected classes with additional educational benefits, but not with favorable hiring and promotion status. Scrap Affirmative Action regulations and practices. You cannot fight discrimination with discrimination. Regardless of how the Fed Gov words these laws, policies and regs, they're are discriminatory - and expensive - and ineffective.... more »

cutting down on EEO complaints

One way to cut down on EEO complaints is to ensure that those supervisors and managers who have had mulitiple viable complaints filed against them are removed or terminated from their current job. Why are the same managers who have received mulitple complaints of discrimination or unfair hiring practices being allowed to continue in their present postion and in some cases promoted. Save yourself from a lawsuit, and... more »

Anonymous Interviews-Less EEO Complaints

Too often high-ranking officials choose those most like them for promotions and unfortunately discriminate against more qualified minorities.

Perhaps it is time for others outside the region to choose who to promote through anonymous interviews, thus race and ethnicity are not a part of the hiring decision. Such methods are used when submitting dissertations for doctorate degrees. The dissertation is not judged by... more »

Clean Up SSA

Clean up SSA by monitoring and eliminating the illegal/biased hiring practices, biased PACS evaluation program practices, the biased awards program and the retaliation of the HTGN WV ODAR office Management. The one judge that was suspended and then resigned was just one of the authorities in this office that manipulates employees, abuses their power/position, discriminates against employees and perpetuates a hostile... more »

Please address concerns about management abuse

Sometimes it is discrimation, other times is bulling, other times is just an issue with personality conflict or simply management acting innapropriately at work. If the agency continues to "brush" off these complaints by dismissing them quickly at the EEO levels, they are... more »
