TDCJ maintains zero tolerance policy for discrimination, sexual harassment

Backgate Says: How amusing is this ? Does ANY employee with more then 6 months believe this at all ? Should read " Call if you want to, we got something in return for your behind. We don't get mad, we get even."
From TDCJ;

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice remains committed to equal employment opportunity (EEO) and enforcement of the agency's zero tolerance policy against all forms of employment discrimination, including sexual harassment. This zero tolerance policy is designed to prevent the creation of a hostile work environment, where offensive speech or conduct based on gender, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability or genetic information is sufficiently severe or pervasive as to alter the complainant's employment conditions and create an abusive working environment.

Employees are encouraged to promptly report alleged violations of EEO policy to their immediate supervisor, department director or warden. If the allegations are against the employee's supervisor or in the employee's chain of supervision, reports can be filed with the employee's second level supervisor or higher authority, including the agency's executive director. Alleged violations can also be reported to the Human Resources Division's Employee Relations Intake Section at 936-437-4240, the Civil Rights Division of the Texas Workforce Commission at 888-452-4778, or the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) at 800-669-4000.

Complaints filed with the Human Resources Division are investigated by an Internal EEO Section, which is separate from the EEOC. Employees may also contact the Office of the Inspector General at 512-671-2480 to report alleged criminal violations of the agency's harassment policy.


  1. Zero tolerance doesn't appear to be working. Probably since there is a group in which this rule doesn't apply.

  2. ( * )( * ) - Now that's what I'm talkin' about!

  3. With everyone sleeping with each other I only see that there okay with it

  4. Watch out for lt rocker. If he cant get in your pants. He gone try to take your job...... he is at the Terrell unit. He tried and failed but the warden there niw is on his side and when it comes to rank they stick together and they believe in retaliation big time.something must be done. The hoes of tdc which are the females that have sex with them makes it very hard for the real women

  5. The TDCJ policy for sexual harassment is not working at all at the Coffield Unit. After the complaint is filed they still work the victim with the alleged Sgt. that committed the act. Further more they inform the Female officer that if she talks about the issue that they are going to file displinary action against her, but yet they let the Sgt. talk about the issue all over the unit to the point where it is putting pressure on the female officer, and after this is reported no action is taken against the Sgt. TDCJ's policy on this subject is total bad news.

  6. Same issues w the Sayle unit. There is a major conducting himself in an inappropriate manner. Evidence of sexual misconduct w inmates, as well as harassment against several co's.
    They have an open investigation into this . The involved parties have been retaliated against. But whoever filed the complaint good for you.. you must know someone w alot of clout. Senator and st.reps don't just show up to the administration office in Huntsville, wanting answers. Certainly hope that policy changes. Not just at Sayle but everywhere
