Parker e-mailed a complaint in December 2006 to the state's Equal Employment Opportunity office concerning what he described as sexually explicit language and inappropriate contact between two co-workers.
Parker says his schedule was then changed for punitive reasons, that his work performance was criticized, and that co-workers ostracized him.
Parker says stress caused him health problems and he resigned in
April 2009.
