Federal employee wins retaliation claim on appeal. The complainant worked at the Department of Defense (DoD) as a program analyst. She alleged that she was discriminated against as retaliation for prior protected EEO activity.
Specifically, she alleged that her office director gave her temporary detail supervisor information about her prior EEO complaint. According to the complainant, the DoD disclosed this information in an effort to interfere with her job opportunities. Complaint alleged there was no reason for the temporary supervisor to know about her prior EEO.
After an investigation, the agency determined that complainant did not prove that the agency had subjected her to discrimination. The complainant appealed the Final Agency Decision (FAD) to the EEOC. On appeal, the EEOC reversed the FAD. The EEOC found the agency had subjected complainant to adverse treatment when information related to her prior EEO was released.
