Agent Attacks LOMA Hiring Practices

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

An Atlanta resident who applied unsuccessfully for a job as business development director at the Life Office Management Association Inc. has filed a lawsuit.

Leon Morris, a mortgage planner who worked as a life insurance agent from 1984 to 1991 and was a senior associate at LOMA from 1991 to 1995, alleges in a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Atlanta that LOMA now has only one African-American manager and reported a list of directors, officers and key employees for 2004 that included no African-Americans.

Morris holds the Chartered Life Underwriter and Chartered Financial Consultant professional designations.

LOMA is denying the allegations.

“The allegations are completely false, and LOMA will defend itself appropriately,” a spokeswoman says.
