An age discrimination complaint filed by Port Isabel City Secretary Susie Alcocer has been dismissed by the Civil Right Division of the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).
In a letter sent to both the City and John Shergold, an attorney representing Alcocer, TWC writes, “The TWCCRD is unable to conclude that information obtained establishes any violations of the statutes. This does not certify that the respondent is in compliance with the statutes.”
Shergold explains that the finding was a neutral decision. “That means we have the option of a lawsuit,” in civil court, he said.
“It just means that they didn’t find any violations of the statute,” Port Isabel City Attorney Gilberto Hinojosa explained Thursday. “As far as the City is concerned, this matter is, I think for right now, resolved,” he said.
