“In September 2010, Gogel and Tyler put together a 14-page “report of concerns” to their supervisors… Shortly after, “when they realized the report of concerns wasn’t really being investigated or looked into and when the concerns weren’t being addressed,” Gogel and Tyler went to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Gogel was then put on administrative leave, Carter said. Gogel was told that she couldn’t come back to work until she signed a document saying she wouldn’t discuss her EEOC filing with any team members.”
