Federal employee loses EEOC case but wins sanctions. On February 20, 2018, Complainant, an employee of the Department of the Army, filed an equal employment opportunity (EEO) complaint against the Agency.

Complainant was employed as a Security Assistant, GG-0086-05, at the Tripler Army Medical Center. She alleged that the Agency discriminated against her based on her race (Asian), sex (female), age (54), and reprisal for prior protected EEO activity. Complainant requested a hearing before an EEOC AJ. The Agency filed a motion for summary judgment, which Kylee opposed. Although the AJ granted the motion, the AJ sanctioned the Agency for its legal counsel’s actions during the investigation’s fact-finding conference, and for exceeding by about a month and a week the 180-day regulatory deadline to complete the EEO investigation.
