Katharine B. was a mail handler when she filed a complaint that because of her race, sex, and disability, she was denied higher-level pay, was removed from her bid assignment, management created a hostile work environment, and various other complaints about her working situation. At the Agency hearing, Katharine objected to her supervisor’s presence, as the supervisor was acting as the Agency representative and the responsible management official. The Agency ruled that Katharine failed to prove that the agency subjected her to discrimination. On appeal, the EEOC found that allowing Katharine’s supervisor to act as the Agency representative was a conflict of interest and vacated the decision.
