Mr. Gary Freedman

Washington, DC 20008
Dear Mr. Freedman
This will acknowledge receipt, by the Department of Labor's (DOL) Civil Rights Center (CRC), of your complaint on 1/4/2005.
The CRC is responsible for enforcing Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, as amended; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; Section 188 of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998; and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended. Collectively, these laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, disability, citizenship, political affiliation or belief and status as a WIA participant in programs funded, in whole or in part, by the Department of Labor (DOL). CRC also has responsibility for enforcing Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability by public entities. Programs funded by DOL include, but are not limited to, WIA Programs (Job Corps, Older Workers, Dislocated Workers, Youth Employment and Training, Native Americans, Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers, etc.) and the State Employment Service, the Unemployment Insurance Program, and grant programs administered by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and the Veterans' Employment and Training Service. The regulations require that complaints be filed within 180 days from the date of the alleged discrimination.
Based on the information you provided, CRC does not have jurisdiction over your complaint. You may wish to contact a private attorney to handle the fraud and racketeering problems you are alleging. Therefore, we are returning your disc to you.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
