A chairwoman for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) called for an internal investigation of the organization’s office in Dallas. According to a USA Today article by Nick Penzenstadler, Brett Murphy, and Javonte Anderson, complaints of improper treatment of employees surfaced. The director of the Dallas district office, Belinda McCallister, held a meeting that offered vague promises.
The article also states that McCallister is one of the managers who had been accused of discriminatory behavior. The employees were told not to speak with the press but to direct media inquiries to the central office to handle. The article also shares that employees talked to USA Today following the meeting, sharing their frustrations and disappointment for handling the situation.
