Charges filed with EEOC against City of Duncanville
from The Ellis County Observer »... by Truth B. Told
New information today regarding the City of Duncanville and City employee Earl Grody, water foreman for City of Duncanville, Joel Daugherty, superintendent of Water, Waste Water and I&I department at the City Service Center, located at 330 Shady Trail, Duncanville, along with various others, have been named in charges filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, aka EEOC. The EEOC is the Federal Agency that investigates and looks into claims that employers have discriminated against their employees because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability. The charges filed against the City of Duncanville include charges of sexual harassment including a sexually hostile work environment, discrimination, and retaliation. It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against former or present employees because they have made a charge, testified, assisted or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under this law or because they opposed any practice made unlawful by the statutes. The City of Duncanville will have to be held accountable sooner of later for their actions and for whom they put in charge of their city. It looks like it’s going to be sooner than later!

Discrimination should not be tolerated at all, whether it's racial,sexual or religious, and those who are guilty should be fired on the spot.
There are many racists who love to play the race card, and it's a shame, there are many who are really racially discriminated and are not beleived because some people love to throw the race card at every situation, before any facts are known.
Racism is a disease but not only for employers, but emplyees as well, it's all very sick.

Charges are still under investigation here in Duncanville. The City Of Duncanville has "conveniently" released from employment the main person involved in the charges against the City who allowed this type of behavior to go unchecked and allowed. Originally the perpetrator of the most offensive behavior, Earl Grody, was to be fired for being involved in apparently a 4th incident in which he had a driving accident involving a city vehicle in less than 6 years. That's a vehicular accident approximately once every 18 months or so. His last vehicle accident involved him totaling a city vehicle by colliding with a PARKED CAR!! Sources state that when informed of his pending termination he requested to be allowed to resign without cause. So that of course means that he is able to have a favorable termination, keep his retirement, etc.. I know the City of Duncanville realized the liability Mr. Grody represented to them and welcomed the opportunity to relieve them of that liability. Regardless, the City of Duncanville along with Mr. Grody, Mr. Joel Daugherty along with City Officials who not only knew of the discrimination and harrassment but condoned it will not got through this that easily. Just because Mr. Grody is no longer an employee that does not relieve any of the parties involved of their responsibility to follow and implement Federal Law. Updates to follow..........

TO: David Williams: Charges are being looked at, nothing is concrete. Well, no it is concrete. On July 29, 2010 in a formal letter of determination from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commision-Dallas Office- have officially found the City of Duncanville liable for sexual harrassment and retaliation, and discrimination based on sex and gender. It doesn't get more concrete than that. More to come soon...

Good job Truth B. Told, things like this should not be swept under the rugs,the city counsel has a bad reputation of hiding things.
Duncanville needs to be investigated in many areas, the red light cameras do not funtion correctly and have flashed when no cars are near,plus the Duncanville police dept needs to be investigated too,it is full of corruption.
I hope Duncanville is investigated thoroughly these type of crimes should not be allowed.
