“Civil Rights Division Lawyers And Staff Gave Low Marks To Justice Department Leadership In A Workplace Survey”

Zoe Tillman:

Fewer than a third of attorneys and staff in the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division who participated in a workplace survey this year reported feeling “satisfied” with the policies and practices of senior DOJ leadership, according to a report obtained by BuzzFeed News.

A high percentage of Civil Rights Division employees reported feeling satisfied with their work, their immediate supervisors, and their colleagues, but the positive responses dropped when it came to senior leadership. Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Justice Department has changed course on a number of civil rights issues, including arguing againstfederal protections for gay workers and scaling back oversight of local police departments.
