My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Maryland
My wife and I know a family within our area (local neighbor about a mile away). Their daughter were friends with our daughter. Recently there was a situation where their daughter was bullying our daughter. My wife got involved and sent an email to her indicating this and that she felt this was inappropriate behavior. This is pretty common, if anyone has children they will know these things happen. There had been situations with other parents where we got notification that our daughter's behavior was bad and we took steps to correct it with our children.
However, this mother (very Type A personality) sent a message back indicating that she didn't feel her daughter was doing anything wrong. My wife and I then indicated to her via SMS that we felt the kids should stay separate for some time. The mother took this personal and starting hurling racial slurs and both my wife and I. My wife and I are a bi-racial couple (Chinese and middle eastern). She even went far as to discuss the physical sexual appearance of our 10 year old daughter!!!!! These are some examples.
1. Sent me a message calling me a "sand nigger and that I need to go back to the middle east"
2. Called my wife a chink
3. Starting saying my wife was naked and poor and this is the why she came here (US)
4. Starting saying my wife is a baby killer, "all the Chinese abort babies" etc etc...
There were several other examples, anyway this woman is a contracts manager at a federal contracting company. I contacted the VP and Dir of public relations indicating what went on and they put me through to their "Ethics Department". The Ethics department asked me for copies of all the emails as well as text messages from her.
I sent them about 10 - 15 emails from her work email account (using work email for personal use) as well as all the screenshots of the text messages from her phone (phone number listed in signature of work email).
My question is more/less since they are asking for this kind of information, can this affect her work status there? Also, are they just going to protect themselves or not do anything.
This employee has a security clearance Top Secret.
