Federal Bureau of Investigation
Although Title VII prohibits employment discrimination based on race, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is no stranger to systemic discrimination. Currently, only 4% of the 13,000 FBI agents around the world are Black, with virtually no progressive change in the past three decades. At David Shaffer Law, PLLC, we are constructing a class-action lawsuit against the FBI. While this is no simple feat, there is power in numbers. We have filed three class actions against the FBI, and against ATF, the Secret Service, and the former Customs Service.
If you have been discriminated against as an FBI agent on the basis of race, we encourage you to fill out the following form (all information collected is protected under Attorney/Client privilege) and we look forward to fervently seeking justice alongside you with the help of your voice. We cannot stress enough how important your role plays in the future of race in federal law enforcement.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement
Have you been excluded from the ICE agent selection pool due to the male-tailored physical standards test?
We are exploring a class action against the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) because their physical standards test discriminates against women. Other FLETC agencies have gender-normed standards, as does the FBI and DEA. The lack of different physical standards for women has been found by the EEOC and the Department of Justice itself to be a major barrier to entry of women in law enforcement.
Would you like to be contacted about potential discrimination and be involved in challenging the physical standards of law enforcement agencies? If you are a woman who has failed the FLETC physical standards for ICE, please fill out the following form. Your answers will be confidential under attorney-client privilege.
