EEOC finds discrimination at Freddie Mac

September 03, 1998
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has concluded there is widespread discrimination against black employees by Freddie Mac, a federally chartered mortgage underwriting company.
     Acting on a complaint filed by Tony Morgan, Freddie Mac's former director of corporate relations, the EEOC issued a finding recently that said the publicly held company has created a ``hostile work environment'' and urged swift corrective action to head off another lawsuit.
     The EEOC filed suit against Freddie Mac last year, but a federal judge dismissed the suit after finding that the company had taken sufficient remedial action.
     But EEOC lawyers said other employees have come forward since then with evidence of a pattern of discrimination against black employees.
