State HR manager files federal discrimination complaint against Wisconsin Dept. of Veterans Affairs

A human resources manager at the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs has filed a discrimination complaint with both state and federal agencies after she was denied a promotion.

Laura Tetting, the former interim director of human resources and a current HR manager at the agency, believes she was potentially discriminated against because of her Native American race, her gender, her age and her efforts to oppose alleged discrimination at the agency against others.

The complaint, filed with the state Department of Workforce Development and the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, includes allegations that are unproven at this point. It comes as one of the agency's veterans' homes is being audited by the Legislature and its chief official, Secretary John Scocos, announced his resignation earlier this month. Scocos said he will step down on Jan. 7.

The veterans agency, represented by the state Department of Justice, disputes Tetting’s claims and said in a written response to her complaint that she made dozens of errors on the job and never alerted management at WDVA to cases of discrimination against other employees.

1. Please friends, never take the interim manager position.

 

You get all the responsibility with none of the authority and you are simply a placeholder until their friend from the golf course gets the job. I am a headhunter - I have seen this about a million times.

Tell management that if you are good enough to do the job they need to give you the job and that you are unwilling to accept the interim position because, again,you will have all the responsibility and none of the authority, and it is a losing proposition.

Many of the best candidates I've moved have come to me because they were ask to be an interim, they were lied to about the potential that they would be given the job, and when the unqualified consultant or friend of an executive was hired, they realized they needed to move on.
