The Jones et al. v. Chopra et al. lawsuit alleged that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ("CFPB" or the "Bureau") engaged in systemic discrimination
against Black/African American and Hispanic employees who worked in certain positions in the Office of Consumer Response.
In the lawsuit, Plaintiffs challenged several CFPB policies and practices as discriminatory against such Black/African American and Hispanic employees,
including those relating to compensation and movement within the Bureau. Plaintiffs also alleged the Bureau retaliated against employees who complained of
racial discrimination or engaged in other protected equal employment opportunity ("EEO") activity.
The Bureau denied these allegations. Instead of continuing to litigate this case, the parties settled this lawsuit.
This Claim Form is intended to assist you in providing information about how, if at all, you believe you were subjected to discrimination,
a hostile work environment, or harassment by the Bureau because you are Black/African American and/or Hispanic, or were retaliated against by
the Bureau for protected EEO activity, and what losses and harm you suffered as a result. You may not have experienced some of the topics addressed below.
You need only respond to questions that apply to you. If you believe you experienced discrimination because you are Black/African American and/or Hispanic
and/or retaliation for protected EEO activity in ways not specifically addressed below, please include additional information in Section P, using additional pages if needed,
in order to fully set forth your claim of discrimination on the basis of your Black/African American and/or Hispanic race and/or ethnicity and/or claim of retaliation for protected EEO activity.
