Former Missouri Veterans Ombudsman files EEOC complaint

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (AP) - The state's former Veterans Ombudsman has filed a complaint with the Missouri Human Rights Commission.

Patricia Rowe Kerr was dismissed Nov. 10 from the Missouri Veterans Commission.

The Jefferson City News Tribune reported her 12-page "charge of discrimination" names the commission, Executive Director Larry D. Kay and Deputy Director Bryan Hunt. It was filed this past week.

She alleges that Kay and Hunt created a hostile workplace environment, retaliated against her for contacting the state National Guard's commander and discriminated against her on the basis of age and gender.

Kay said in an e-mail that he was not aware of the complaint and that the commission is "committed to maintaining and promoting a healthy and positive work environment."

The News Tribune said Hunt did not respond to an e-mailed request for comment.
