EEOC offices dump cases. — Gabrielle Martin

U.S. Department of Justice,
According to Rachel Shonfield, AFGE Local 3599, the EEOC staffed
the Las Vegas EEOC office with only 7 employees
Q: did the EEOC set up the Las Vegas EEOC office to fail?
or 
Q: did y’all [President(s) + OMB + Congress] set up the EEOC to fail?

“EEOC is kicking off its 45th anniversary celebration.
This anniversary comes at a time when too many discrimination claims are
1) buried in the backlog
or
2) dumped in order to help EEOC’s year end statistics,”
says Gabrielle Martin, president of the National Council of EEOC Locals,
216, AFGE/AFL-CIO (“the Council”), which represents the agency’s workers.

dumped cases (?) = FRAUD
In law,
FRAUD is deliberate deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain,
or to
deprive a vicTim of a legal right.

The call center comes at a great cost to you (Taxpayers! who are also complainanTs) -
1) $4.9M
or
2) the cost of no new permanent staff,
3) the cost of getting rid of long term employees whose retirement benefits cost a lot of money,
and
4(e!) the cost of dumping cases

what is EEOC doing to tackle the backlog? “Worse than nothing,”
says Martin.
The Union has filed unfair labor complaints in each of EEOC’s 53 offices,
charging that the agency mandated quotas of cases
each employee had to shut down (close) (dump) before the end of FY10.
Martin states, “The EEOC panicked before the 4th quarter, ratcheting up
the case dumping requirements
to try to improve the dismal year-end statistics that must be reported to Congress.
Neither the public or EEOC workers should have to suffer
because of this poor solution to the backlog.”
