Backing away from a step that critics decried as retaliatory, the chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has dropped plans to demote a regional official who helped alert Congress to the agency's mishandling of thousands of age discrimination cases. Chairman Clarence Thomas informed the official, St. Louis District Director Lynn Bruner, in a memo this week that she would retain her post and her standing in the government's senior executive service. Senate investigators had charged in a report released in December that the job bias commission for two years ignored Bruner's warnings that the agency's poor management was allowing age discrimination charges to languish while a legal deadline for action on the cases slipped by. Then, when a Senate committee called her to testify about the matter last summer, Bruner was harassed by her superiors at the commission, the investigators alleged.

In a blistering report, the Democratic staff of the Senate Aging Committee alleges that the agency ignored St. Louis District Director Lynn Bruner's warnings almost two years ago about the handling of the cases.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission failed to act last year on more than 200 age discrimination cases before the statute of limitations expired, EEOC Chairman Clarence Thomas told a hostile congressional hearing on Monday, a year after he had promised to improve the agency's performance. "It is troubling that . . . the agency charged with protecting victims of age discrimination has continued to allow over 200 age discrimination charges to die of old age," said Rep.

For nearly eight stormy years, Clarence Thomas had the unenviable job of enforcing civil rights laws for an Administration that did not want them. He weathered tough attacks from liberals and backroom pressure from conservatives as he stuck to his own sharply articulated views of what constitutes discrimination and how to remedy it in the workplace.
