Good morning. Thank you for coming back with your new question and asking for me.
They are claiming they investigated your national origin discrimination claim and found it not to be valid, but under the law even if your original claim of national origin discrimination is invalid, the employer is forbidden from retaliating against you for making that claim and can be sued for retaliation even if the original discrimination claim was not founded.
Thus, retaliation can still be valid and pursued if you have evidence this conduct started after you made your discrimination claim or you have other evidence you are being treated this way only because you made this complaint (as we previously discussed).
You can raise your discrimination claim again with the investigation unit, but you would do this in addition to your retaliation claim.
