New York, NY 10005-2112
To Whom It May Concern:
As per the attached Determination and Order After Investigation, issued by the New York State Division of Human Rights, I wish to formally request a review by EEOC into the details of this case.
My request is based on the fact that the State of New York neglected to reference within their determination why my employer, the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services, Inc. (JBFCS) required that I use my personal checking account to conduct business affiliated with the State of New York’s Medicaid transportation reimbursement program.
I explained to both my employer and to the State of New York, through formal complaints, that the burden of having to use my personal checking account to conduct their business was triggering my disability (schizophrenia). I became paranoid after Chase Manhattan Bank placed a hold on my personal checking account in July 2005 due to “suspicious activity– activity associated with my job duties.
It is my belief that the harassment referenced in my formal disability complaints was a result of having to use my personal checking account to route State and Federal Medicaid money.
The State of New York grants millions of dollars annually to the agency that I have filed these charges against, and it is possible that a conflict of interest exists. The state’s refusal to acknowledge these charges as part of my formal complaint within their ‘final order after investigation’ is unacceptable.
