Corruption In The Los Angeles County Department of Children & Family Services: The Wateridge Offices

video

     As an employee of the  Los Angeles County Department of children & Family Services (DCFS), we see a large sign that is posted in every lunch room in every field office and posted in other areas of DCFS offices. This sign reflects the Los Angeles County Policy of Equity as listed below:

The purpose of this Policy is intended to preserve the dignity and professionalism of the workplace as well as to protect the right of employees to be free from discrimination, sexual harassment, unlawful harassment (other than sexual), retaliation and inappropriate conduct toward others based on a protected status. Discrimination, sexual harassment, unlawful harassment (other than sexual), retaliation and inappropriate conduct toward others based on a protected status are absolutely contrary to the values of the County. Discrimination, sexual harassment, unlawful harassment, and retaliation are also illegal under local, county, state, and federal law.
The County will not tolerate discrimination, sexual harassment, unlawful harassment (other than sexual), or retaliation. As a preventive measure, the County also will not tolerate inappropriate conduct toward others based on a protected status even if the conduct does not meet the legal definition of discrimination or harassment.
You can read this policy in full on the LA County Equity Oversight Panel Website:

      Almost a year ago I came to present to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors a report of a very obvious case of retaliation against me that involved my Assistant Administrator, two supervisors and several  female co-workers. These DCFS Children's Social workers had submitted falsified affidavits that contained accusations against me about how I conducted myself during a "Detention" as we call it or otherwise known as removing children from their parents home. These affidavits that were signed under the penalty of perjury contained very idiotic, petty and conflicting accounts of what had occurred before, during and after the detention. 

    It is very obvious that they were just trying to "frame me up" on very shaky evidence that if it was all true, would also prove that they were in violation of LA County policies and Child Welfare laws!!!  If a proper investigation had been done on these original documents, it would have provided even more evidence that the accounts given in the affidavits were falsified!

     About six months before I gave this first report to the LA County Board of Supervisors, I had complained to the Director of LA County DCFS about how acts of retaliation and violations of county policy as well as violations of our  M.O.U. contract had been ignored in complaints that I had made to the offices of Affirmative Action Compliance, Employee Relations and to our Deputy Director Eric Marts. 

     After I reported their criminal misconduct to the LA County Board of Supervisors almost a year ago, I have been the target of continued retaliations and harassment by being subjected to constant  "Disciplinary Duress" that, I believe,  has been ordered by the Director of DCFS Eric Marts and his gang of Cubicle idiots that include the Regional Administrator of the DCFS Wateridge offices Iris Courteney, an the Assistant regional Administrator Edward Bielecki, two supervisors and several co-workers. All of these idiots were dumb enough to give false testimony at my Civil Service hearings this year while I was recording them in digital audio.................. To be continued.

  1. You should file a complaint with the EEOC and search for a good attorney.

    Good attorney, if there is such a thing.
