The Contra Costa County of Office of Discrimination / DATABASE ADMINISTRATOR

During early 2000s Pete Bennett was hired on contract basis to develop the CalNet reports for the General Ledger.  When they found out Pete Bennett was working at the County but had filed an EEOC complaint with Hall-Kinion another firm that had placed several H-1b visas in the County IT Department.

According the Labor Condition Application rules the employer must post the opening in a prominent work area on a index card.

At the same Hall-Kinion was sending Pete Bennett to job interviews where it was clear something was wrong.  

The manager called me to say she was leaving
