Postal employee proves Rehabilitation Act violation. Complainant, a USPS employee, filed an EEO alleging harassment on the basis of race, color and disability.
At the end of the investigation, the Complainant chose a Final Agency Decision instead of an EEOC hearing. The USPS found that it had done nothing wrong. The Complainant appealed. While the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations agreed that she did not prove harassment, it found instead that the postal service violated the Rehabilitation Act when the Postmaster made a comment about Complainant suffering from dyslexia in front of a customer. This case is a good reminder that you should always consult with an experienced federal employment attorney when pursuing a federal EEO, EEOC hearing or OFO appeal
