What is a Responsible Management Official-RMO?  
(a.k.a -- Alleged Discriminating Official)


When filing a court case, the employee (Plaintiff) generally names as the Defendant, the head of the agency.  For example, Janet Howard vs. Carlos Gutierrez, Secretary of Commerce.   Although additional defendants may be added to court complaints, it is standard protocol for federal employees to name the head of the agency in employment discrimination complaints.   It should be noted; however, that at the administrative level (within the agency) when an employee or applicant files an EEO complaint against a Federal agency, the complainant generally names an individual (rarely the head of the agency) as the person they perceived to have discriminated against them.

This RMO page lists persons named in employment discrimination court proceedings, published articles, or administrative case proceedings.   A Responsible Management Official (RMO) also referered to as an Alleged Discriminating Official, as defined by this webpage, is the person(s) named by the complainant/plaintiff or indicated by the record (such as court / MSPB decision) as the individual responsible, in whole or in part, for participating in; taking or recommending the action or decision that is the issue of the employee complaint.  Often,the employee names the RMO as the one that has committed the alleged discriminating act based on such factors as race, color, or reprisal for previous EEO activity; and as the one responsible for the action(s) or made decision(s) that harmed the Complainant.   The use of RMO - Responsible Management Official - is the acronym used to identify the official(s). Also noted on this page are person(s) who have allegedly contributed to a plaintiff’s discrimination and /or hostile environment claim or persons who have been named in court proceedings.

  • Cases cited, in the public domain, reflect complaint activity / litigation that has contributed to increase cost to the taxpayer.
  • Bracketed item reflects the Federal entity where the alleged offense occurred.
  • Management officials cited on this page may or may not have been found guilty of alleged acts; however cases as cited indicate that management failed to resolve claims of discrimination or retaliation at the lowest level possible.

DISCLAIMER: Persons listed on this site may no longer work at the Department where the alleged discriminatory act occurred; however persons listed on this site have been identified in public records by an aggrieved party as a person either violating their or another parties civil rights and/or creating a hostile work environment.   No representation is being made about the completeness or timeliness of any of the content on the site.
