In October 1991 Dennis M. Race, Esq. (202 887 4028) (Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld) consulted a Sheppard Pratt counselor who acquiesced in Mr. Race's decision to terminate my employment. I was not given an opportunity to discuss my employment problems with Sheppard Pratt, which was Akin Gump's Employee Assistance Provider. Attached is a workers' comp claim I have filed based on injuries I suffered at Akin Gump and which Sheppard Pratt (Washington, DC) and you specifically failed to address. Sheppard Pratt promoted itself as knowledgeable about employment-related problems, but in my case SP was unable to identify the specific and recognized problem of workplace mobbing.
