Employment Law: Discrimination-Exhaustion-Arkansas Law


Where a plaintiff who brought discrimination and retaliation claims against his former employer challenged a finding that he failed to exhaust some of his claims, the plaintiff failed to administratively exhaust his constructive-discharge allegations by not including in his EEOC charge the adverse acts which he claims forced him to resign, and the judgment is affirmed because the plaintiff did not establish a prima facie case of discrimination, and the court did not err by granting summary judgment to the employer on his constitutional due process claim because he did not show that he possessed a property interest in his employment pursuant to Arkansas law.

Judgment is affirmed.
