Federal employee alleges pregnancy discrimination and retaliation. Complainant, a federal employee, filed an EEO complaint alleging that her supervisor discriminated against her.
Complainant asserted claims for pregnancy discrimination and retaliation. She also alleged verbal harassment and that she was denied accommodations. Further, she was terminated while she was on maternity leave and was not provided an explanation for her termination.
The Agency issued a Final Agency Decision (FAD) concluding that she had not proven it had subjected her to discrimination or retaliation. Complainant appealed this decision to the EEOC. In its decision, the EEOC determined that Complainant was subjected to both pregnancy discrimination as well as retaliation (reprisal). She was awarded attorney’s fees and reinstated. The EEOC also ordered an investigation into compensatory damages for the harm caused by the discrimination.
