This is the worst job I have ever had. For starters let me first stipulate that these comments are in no way unfairly bashing anyone or a company. These comments are based off events that occurred and are 100% true and correct as they happened and the issues and matters that are still going on regarding them.
I worked for a government organization for 5 years and was excessively sexually harassed, bullied and lied on continuously. After I complained about it, I was fired. I was fired a little right before I was completely to get 5 years. At that moment I would have been somewhat vested in the organization. They did that to hurt me amongst other things. As far as the harassment was concerned, I did everything humanly possible to get the harasser to leave me alone, but it never stopped. I brought it to my Manager on several occasions and he did nothing but slap the person on the wrist because he had sexual intentions towards me himself...He even propositioned me when I got hired for sex and I rejected him. Over a period of time he kept up the Shenanigans but I just avoided him as much as possible even though he was my direct Manager. From that point on he had it in for me. (Did I mention that both perpetrators are Married)
It affected my work, my well being and my entire motivation for working there. Finally, after getting fed up with it, I took it upon myself to take matters into my own hands because the Human Resource Department and Management did absolutely, absolutely nothing, especially the Human Resource Department.
They in turn made the situation all about me. The harasser even admitted to harassing me during my employment. This admission was recorded. It was never my attention to cause conflict with this organization. They just (failed) to take care of the matters surrounding me..Made me out to be a complainer and punished me, instead of helping someone that was purely concerned about there welfare and well being working within their organization.
Ultimately, I filed a complaint with the GEOC. And for those of you who do not know the acronym or abbreviation. It stands for Georgia Equal Opportunity Commission. They did absolutely nothing as well. Was very (biased), of course because the agency I filed against was another Government agency. Instead of helping me, they fed every bit of information back to my organization I provided to them, so that the organization could get all their ducks in a row, but told me nothing and or refuse to disclose to me what my organization was falsely claiming against me. And I say (falsely) because they refuse to inform me of the information and later tried to influence or talk me out of seeing it even though it was supposed to be part of public record that anyone can obtain. If any of the statements indicated and or said within the document concerning me were true, why not let me be privy to it and inform me of it. The reason why is because they are (false)allegations and bunch of lies and any other information outside of that could have been directed to me. They did not want to confront me concerning it (Cowards) because they wanted to get rid of me for filing a claim against them (retaliation)..
The GEOC complaint eventually got overturned and dismissed due to them telling me that I did not have enough evidence. I had more than enough evidence even a recording of the harasser as I mentioned admitting to harassing me. They totally ignored that. I sought out legal help or so called legal help but no lawyer at the time wanted to go up against a government organization.
They tapped my phone, hacked into my computer and destroyed it several times, my personal property, had the police and private investigators follow me everywhere I went. Invaded my home. Stole private and intimate information off my computer and phone and disbursed it. Sabotaged my work, had me redo or trick me into doing a background check for a job I already had and then disbursed that information amongst everyone at the job. (Still have a copy of the document) Cheated me out of my last paycheck. There was an abundance of hate, racism and jealousy towards me. I would not want to say this but I say this as it is truthfully of my heart because this is what I observed and experienced. Out of all that chaos and conflict they fired me but told me they "laid me off" due to budget issues, so they would not get investigated. They plain and simply fired me because of that claim. Anyone who gets laid off is not escorted out of the building by security all the way out to their car and is subject to be hired back, especially if you are telling them that getting laid off was no fault of your own, other departments laid people off, your file has no negative information in it about you and if you wanted to get hired on at state agency you could. This is what the Director of Human resources department conveyed to me. That conversation was recorded. All my performance reviews were great and I had no reprimands or write ups.
They just told me that to keep me quite so that I would not pursue a lawsuit against them. I took it with a grain of salt and believed in this individual of what they were telling me. After all this was the Director of Human Resources. Why would she lie to me? However,she and whomever (Former and Current Management upon leaving) was telling me one thing and telling other entities something entirely different. This as a result affected me and has affected me obtaining employment elsewhere.
I know this is an at will State, but what was done to me during my employment there was hateful, discriminatory, hostile and illegal and they know it. Just because they are a government agency, that does not mean that they are above the law. I was basically standing up and protecting myself against an organization who made crazy and untrue claims concerning me, bullied and harassed me.
After realizing they were and still are interfering with me gaining employment elsewhere, I went back to the EEOC in Georgia as of today but of course the agency I worked for already knew I was going to do this because they still have my phone tapped. Needless to say to no avail they were absolutely not helpful at all..Constantly lied to me, talked over me and was not helpful whatsoever. The individual I spoke with was named Mrs/Ms.Freeman or at least that is what she told me. She probably was lying about that too. They told me that the file I had put in originally there was destroyed as of August, this month. Coincidence right? It was destroyed the same month I came to get a copy of it. First they tell me they had it and I could get a copy, then they tell me it would take up to two weeks to get a copy, then they could not find it, then finally it was destroyed(laughable) This is where your tax dollars are going.
Here is a list of all the ridiculous lies they told regarding me.
1.) I am Hispanic and was impersonating someone else. My response: (First of all if I was Hispanic, I would have no issue of claiming that but that is definitely not the case. No offense to any other race, but I am African American and am proud of it. I have no earthly idea where they got that crazy notion. I do not even looked mixed.)
2.) My education is false and my Degree is fake. My response (My degree is NOT fake. I have 100% proof that my education and degree is not fake) My name is misspelled on my Degree in comparison to other information, no fault of my own..LMAO, so that makes it fake..absolutely laughable. People misspell my name ALL the time, no surprise there.) This was just another matter to discredit me out of my position.
3.) I lied about my time spent or graduation time. Again laughable. I walked the stage at my commencement in 2001 under the impression I completed all my courses but later found out I had 1 more credit to complete I was unaware of. Was going to go back to school to finish the credit, but it got put on the back burner for sometime due to financial reasons. My degree was released to me in 2006.
4.) I committed fraud using or signing someone elses name. My response to the lie: (Again laughable and also bogus. Just because my name is spelled differently, I am supposed to be impersonation someone. OMG!
And this is a government agency who has tons of resources of figuring this out. Or just simply, I don't know, this maybe a difficult one here..ummm, how about asking the individual you are making these accusations of for clarification and providing proof..Seems simple doesn't it. Not for some people.)
5.) Another lie. That I am gay and I lied about my sexual preference. Again laughable. My response to the lie: (Now I do not have anything against the gay and lesbian community and if I were I would admit of being such, but I am straight and will be indefinitely. This accusation was just made by an insecure man or men who wanted to talk to me and or was harassing me and I would not give them the time of day. Typical).
6.) Lie number six. (That I have a chronic disease because I have allergies..I live in the state of georgia and anyone who is prone to allergies here knows how it is. I had a full, complete, physical around four months ago and everything was just fine)..
7.) Another lie. (I am a woman impersonating a man or vice versa. I laughed so hard concerning this one, my stomach got cramps. Another lie of an insecure man (married man)who got insanely mad because I would not talk to them. No offense to woman who carries on relationship with married men or men on the job. If that is what you choose to do. Then it is your prerogative. Just not and will never be my thing.)
8.) And last but certainly not least, that I steal. I had to laugh again about this one. I do not steal and have never stolen anything from any job I have EVER worked. They had absolutely no proof of this. They have cameras all over the place..laughable. Just another accusation to discredit me. This is an easy stigma to place on (black) people all the time..
There's your list of lies. Never confronted me on any of this bogus nonsense, because they knew they were lies. It is unfortunate that I had to come to this just to get this out there, but I had to..What really got me to the final straw is my financial situation. I know the economy, so they say regarding the job market is kind of still shaky, but adding on to that a former employer interfering,making it even worse by false accusations and statements concerning you. My only nephew was shot and killed two weeks ago and he was only 19 and just starting college. My only sister could not afford to pay for the funeral because of her financial situation and I could not help her because of mine. I still get saddened and cry of this. If I were working a stable job I would have been able to help her out more than I could..
I would never admit to anyone that I am perfect, I know I am not. I treat people how I would want to be treated. Finally, I wanted to get this message out there about this organization, the GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE, so people would know the kind of individuals that work for this agency and would be very cautious of obtaining employment there. If you are great at @$$ kissing, do not mind all the married men constantly harassing you for sex to keep your job or favors, being set-up and lied on, being subjected to a hostile environment because of jealous women and if not having to the temperment to put up with for the fear of losing your job, then this agency is the right agency for your. Again, not an attempt to not falsely claim anything..Just simply telling the truth as I experienced it so that the next person or no one would not have to experience the same thing.
