    Lawyerly advice - EEOC

    Wondering if any resident lawyers have EEOC complaint experience. My wife was named in an EEOC complaint filed by a former senior leader of a non-profit. My wife is junior to this person. She voiced corcerns to the president about this personís behavior but was not involved in the termination, which was reviewed and approved by the board. The complaint was that it was an age-related termination.

    The person has multiple formal complaints on file that include two assessments by outside HR auditors than found this person violated the ethical code of conduct and created a hostile work environment. This person was prone to very animated and angry outbursts.

    I donít know the merits of this personís case but am concerned that my wife was named in the complaint. The organization has a lawyer.

    What if anything should we do to protect ourselves?

    Is your wife an employee of the organization named in the complaint? I donít do this stuff on the employee side (and donít get involved in the finer details on the employer side), but generally an organization has both a duty and an interest in defending employees names in complaints.

    Yes. The organization is named and sheís an employee. The organization has a lawyer. From what I understand, this person could outside of the EEOC, whether acknowledged or rejected, could bring suit against my wife the individual, too.

    Iím more thinking about what I should be doing I. The worst case scenario.

    Iíd be shocked if the EEOC found in her favor based on what I know about the long path to their termination but I also donít know everything.
