USPS employee wins appeal. Complainant filed an EEO alleging discrimination based on sex and reprisal (retaliation).

An EEOC Administrative Judge issued a decision without a hearing dismissing her claims. The Agency then issued a Final Agency Decision (FAD) adopting the decision. Complainant appealed alleging that she never received a copy of the AJ’s decision. The EEOC vacated the FAD and remanded to the USPS for further processing.

In a way, this seems to be a hollow victory as it does not change the decision by the AJ. However, it does allow the Complainant to read the decision of the AJ and then to with specificity which conclusions she asserts are incorrect and the reason for the assertion.
