Introduction to Legal Analysis and Writing Unit 5 Assignment Case Name: Rodman v. New Mexico Emp’t Sec. Dep’t, 764 P.2d 1316 (N.M. 1988) Facts: Plaintiff employee worked as a unit secretary for defendant employer for nearly eight years.

This is a formal notice that it has been brought to my attention that a former employee has filed a lawsuit against our organization under the section Constructive Discharge of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
