- Staffing Firm Under Fire for Employee Retaliation
May 23, 2017
Staffing agency Hire Dynamics L.L.C. is being accused of retaliating against an employee by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The worker had filed a discrimination charge against the company.
The EEOC described the situation Tuesday, saying that the staffing and professional recruiting firm, based in Duluth, GA, had assigned the position of quality auditor (for one of the firm’s clients) to an unidentified employee. The employee missed one day of work and was suspended for a week.
The unnamed employee filed a discrimination charge against the company, prompting the EEOC to file a lawsuit. In the suit, the agency claims that the employee was no longer given any new assignments or opportunities by Hire Dynamics, L.L.C.after filing the charge against the company.
According to the EEOC, these actions violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
EEOC District Director Bernice Williams Kimbrough said in a statement, “an employer has no right to punish him for exercising his rights… In today’s employment climate, the importance of protecting workers who utilize the charge filing process is greater than ever.”
Retaliation charges filed with the EEOC have been recently increasing. If something similar has happened to you, contact a Phoenix employment lawyer from Phillips Law Groupat 1-800-706-3000 .

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Phillips law group is the best around!
