TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ The Florida Human Relations Commission is denying it's biased against workers who file complaints against their employers.
The commission commented Friday on a report issued a day earlier by a group of lawyers who represent employees in discrimination, reprisal and whistle-blower protection cases.
The state chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association said the commission is a “rogue agency'' that's politicized, favors employers and should be fixed or abolished.
The commission responded in a statement saying the report is inaccurate and makes self-serving recommendations. The agency maintains its investigations are fair and impartial and that it strives to be fair to everyone _ accuser and accused alike.
