Filing an informal EEO is a protected activity. Federal employee file an informal EEO but does not move that EEO to the formal stage. What is the status of that informal EEO? The employee cannot pursue that EEO further if it was not moved to formal. However, the employee can file a new EEO based on reprisal if they are being retaliated against due to the previous informal EEO.
Filing an informal EEO is a protected activity for federal employees even if they do not follow through to formal filing.
