Re:Denial of benefits

DearSir/Mad,

Iwish to register my complaint against the Department of Humanresource for unfair assessment and compensation. I feel that thenewly adopted pay-for-performance plan will discriminate againstpolice officers who are quite stronger than others.

Althoughit is correct to state that the physical prowess of individualofficers will be included during the assessment of competence andexpertise in specific areas of combat and on-the-street capabilities,a fair plan should assess officers on similar lines of jobs. It wouldbe unfair to award better pay to an officer who outperforms others inon-the-beat circuit while ignoring those might be good at shootingrange or able to control crowds. Appraising officers on a bi-yearlyperformance will create an unhealthy situation.

Theimplementation of the new appraisal and compensation plan will leadto the violation of the rights of individual officers as guaranteedby Title VI of the Civil Rights Act that was enacted in 1964. The actprohibits discrimination against people from any program that isfunded by federal government.

Itis my hope that you will review the plan and take the necessaryactions. You may reach me via phone number, 513 234 8627. I lookforward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Re:Complaint of age discrimination

Thisletter serves as my complaint of age-related discrimination. I havebeen an honest and disciplined tenant, but now I am surprised to seemy landlord, Maureen, change her attitude towards me just because Iam among the oldest tenants in her rental apartment.

Theperception that I have been discriminated on the basis of my age isbased on two factors. First, Maureen, talks to me rudely and tellsthat I cannot match her whenever I try to request her to stopmistreating me. Secondly, she already gave me a notice to leave herapartment using a claim that I am incompatible with the rest of herclients. I wish to reiterate that I respect other people andMaureen’s decision is based on her negative perception of anelderly tenant.

Tothis end, I feel that my right to fair treatment and protection fromage-related discrimination by the landlord as provided by the FairHousing Act has been infringed. It is my hope that you will take thenecessary action against my landlord and award me appropriate damagesfor frustration and embarrassed I have suffered from her actions.

Incase you need further explanation, you can call me via 513 234 8627.I look forward to your appropriate action.

Sincerely,

Re:Complaint of discrimination

Dearsir/mad,

Iwish to file a complaint of discrimination that I experienced in mycollege. The college discrimination discriminated against me on thebasis of my tradition and beliefs.

Personally,I am a non-traditional student studying in a metropolitan college. OnNovember 12, 2015 I suffered from an epileptic seizure and I ended uppartly removing clothes. In response to my action, the collegeadministration pressured me to withdraw from the college andundertake my studies online. The fact that the college administrationclaimed that the elementary students might feel offended by myactions made me feel discriminated against.

Bypressuring me to leave the college, I feel that the administration’sdecision was inconsistent with the Student Non-discrimination Actenacted in 2015. Under this act, the administration of institutionsof learning are prohibited from discriminating students depending ontheir social characteristics, including sexual orientation, genderidentity, or any other factor. In addition, the administrationinfringed similar rights as provided by the Civil Rights (Title VII)enacted in 1964.

Itis my hope that you will intervene and order the college to allow meto proceed with my education uninterrupted. You may contact me viaphone number 513 234 8627 for more information. I am looking forwardto your response.

Sincerely,

Re:Complaint age-based discrimination

Dearsir/mad,

Iam writing to file a complaint against the supervisor and the storemanager at my employer company. Lately, my supervisor and the managerhave been making comments that feel odd and in the wrong workingplace, since the supervisor have been trying to show me that I olderthan the rest of the employees.

Iam 68 years old and the oldest of all employees, including mysupervisor. My supervisor has been yelling at me and accusing me ofbeing slow at work. The manager has been claiming that I amexperiencing blackouts after observing me slip and fall at work. Thefact that all these accusations are only directed to me makes me feelthat it is all about my age and not the mistakes I make at work.

Bystating that I am slow and that I am getting blackouts because of theold age, the supervisor and the store manager violated the AgeDiscrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), which prohibit employers andmanagers from discriminating their junior members of staff on thebasis of their age.

Iwish to request for your intervention and be awarded damages as perthe law. You may reach me via phone number 513 234 8627 for moreinformation. Thank you in advance as you addressing my claim.

Sincerely,

Re:Complaint age-based discrimination

DearSir/Mad,

Wishto bring to your notice a job advertisement that impliedlydiscriminates against potential applicants on the basis of therespective age. I feel that the manner in which the advertisement hasbeen placed in XXX Newspaper, especially the section on the minimumqualification for the cashier job discourages older applicants.

Thejob advertisement states that potential applicants should beenergetic and young, which is a clear indication that older peopleare not welcome even if they have all other qualifications. Inaddition, the advert states that the successful candidates will berequired to lift about 20-30 pounds and stand for long hours, whichseems to justify the age restriction contained in the advert.However, I feel that even older people like me can stand for longhours and be able to lift the required weight, which makes the advertdiscriminatory in nature.

Byplacing an advert that prohibits old people from applying for thejob, the grocery violated the provisions of the ADEA, which requiresemployers to recruit people depending on their ability to do the joband not the age.

Ibelieve that you will look into this matter and require the groceryto re-advertise the job. You may call me via 513 234 8627 in case youneed more information about the advert. I look forward to yourresponse.

Sincerely,
