    I received the following note from a friend of mine

    *******************************************************************************************************

    JPMORGAN CHASE EMPLOYEE ALERT

    I saw a report that JPMC could be axing 4000 jobs. Though I pray that your job stays safe in this period of tumoil and uncertainity please consider the following and act accordingly.

    As you know I have a case pending with EEOC regarding “hostile work environment” and “retaliation” since I protested their “unlawful employment practices”. If you are not familar please visit the web site http://victimofprejudice.blogspot.com/ and look for the word “EEOC”.

    I am also planning to go ahead with a class action law suit with other employees who have been rendered to similar situations firmwide. See my lawyers notice on blog. In this regard I urge you to take stock of your past and current situation and back up all evidence you have – emails, ST chats, verbal, behavioral evidence etc., that can be termed as unlawful or unethical. You may want to become part of this class action law suit and you may not have access to evidence later if you are laid off.

    Please forward this information among JPMC colleagues you know and alert about this ASAP.
