Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
This is a serious matter,
what you should do is make a formal written complaint with the EEOC, about this action, and they should proceed with legal action against them,
also after the EEOC compliant there actions can be brought up in a civil suit, and extra damages can be asked for.
In fact this may even be criminal impersonation,
as the employer has impersonated a government official,
When you have your EEOC hearing you should ask for sanctions against the employer for their actions as well, and the court can fine them
The EEOC closed my case for not enough information! I am a RN and know discrimination when I see it HCA is a big organization. I have had my reputation ruined and have not found a job in 4 months. The EEOC Robert Carmichael,Charlotte office was going to get back to me re where to go for the impersonation charges since EEOC doesn't do that. Have not heard yet. I am single,broke,jobless and very depressed and anxious. I have worked 35 yrs a RN
and I feel ruined,too young to retire. Linda
