Taking VSP/ERP is not mutually exclusive with filing BOLI/EEOC complaint

Many of us would like to move on and look into the future. However, the layoff selection process taken by Intel Corp. suspiciously smells of age discrimination and the age group composition surfacing from the OWBPA reports indicate that a disproportionate number of people have been selected for layoff based on their age.

Since filing with BOLI/EEOC does not involve hiring an attorney and the filing process is rather simple, those of you who have evidence indicating that you have been discriminated for your age should look at the BOLI/EEOC complaint filing process very seriously.

Note that even if you choose to take ERP or VSP; however, you believe that you have been discriminated 
by Intel Corp. for age, gender, or similar cause, you are encouraged to file a complaint with BOLI/EEOC. By doing so, you will be paving the way to guarantee better enforcement of your civil rights and employment standards, as you continue to seek employment after your Intel career comes to an end.

Please note that you could file a complaint with BOLI/EEOC even while you are still employed at Intel Corp., since employment discrimination is a Civil Rights violation that is covered by both State and Federal laws. This could scare some people who might be wary of retaliation. However, if you get fired by Intel Corp. after filing with BOLI/EEOC, your case could be even stronger and the Oregon Labor Commissioner, as well as the Feds (EEOC), are on your side with formidable powers. All this without visiting a single lawyer. Some of you on the "inside" might even utilize this approach as a "poison pill defense". I.e. - if you suspect that you are being targeted by the big fish, swallow the pill (file). After than, if the big fish is thinking about eating you, they know that they will die in the process... :) 

Update: in California the State agency in charge of employment discrimination cases is DFEH .The DFEH is the state agency charged with enforcing California’s civil rights laws. The mission of the DFEH is to protect the people of California from unlawful discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations and from hate violence. Their web site is:
