On January 30, 2017, a federal employee (Department of Defense) filed a complaint that mainly alleged that she was sexually harassed by her supervisor. The employee specifically alleged that the supervisor had repeatedly requested her to meet after hours and at one point convinced her to engage in sexual relations with him. The Administrative Judge dismissed her case on the basis that she did not report him until 2 years after the harassment had begun and once she reported him, he was immediately removed from his position. The EEOC affirmed the Administrative Judge’s decision in that the Agency had immediately taken action against the supervisor once it was reported. Alvina S. v. Dep’t of Def., EEOC Appeal No. 0120141853 (Jan. 30, 2017)
