A Note about the EEOC
          Supporters of reverse discrimination* (preferential treatment, or racial preferences) like to talk about the fact that non-minorities file very few complaints with EEOC.  They like to imply that "everything must be OK with the non-minorities because they don't file complaints with EEOC."  Next:
Next:  EEOC's Mission

          Research suggests otherwise:   Almost 20% (about 1 out of 5) discrimination complaints with the EEOC are filed by non-minority federal workers!   Non-minorities do have a great many actionable complaints, but  EEOC will never hear about them unless the non-minorities file complaints!  By all means, file a complaint if you feel you have grounds! 

          According to the Federal Times (11/24/97), at the end of fiscal 1996, white federal employees had filed 11,295 complaints with the EEOC, while blacks had filed 9,339 race-based complaints.

Straight from the EEOC's Mouth:

   " Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects individuals against employment discrimination on the basis of race and color as well as national origin, sex, or religion."    (Even if you happen to be a non-minority!)

    " It is unlawful to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of his/her race or color in regard to hiring, termination, promotion, compensation, job training, or any other term, condition, or privilege of employment."

    "Requesting pre-employment information which discloses or tends to disclose an applicant's race suggests that race will be unlawfully used as a basis for hiring."

    It doesn't do you or your fellow victims any good to just grumble to your friends and co-workers about discrimination you experience on the job!  Not only for your sake but for the sake of others in your situation, file a complaint if you believe you have grounds.  Even if you don't obtain a decision in your favor, you will have helped pave the way for the next person and the next person after that who needs to file a complaint.

Filing a Charge:

           If you believe you have been discriminated against by an employer, labor union or employment agency when applying for a job or while on the job because of your race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, or disability, or believe that you have been discriminated against because you oppose an unconstitutional practice (such as reverse discrimination*), you may file a charge of discrimination with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

           Charges may be filed in person, by mail or by telephone by contacting the nearest EEOC office.  If there is not an EEOC office in the immediate area, call toll free 800-669-4000 or 800-669-6820 (TDD) for more information.  To avoid delay, call or write beforehand if you need special assistance, such as an interpreter, to file a charge.

*  We use the term reverse discrimination reluctantly and only because it is so widely understood.  In our opinion there really is only one kind of discrimination.
