USPS employee wins EEOC appeal. Complainant filed an EEO alleged the Agency denied him a reasonable accommodation.
The Agency issued a Final Agency Decision finding no discrimination of the Rehabilitation Act. Complainant appealed to the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations. The OFO found that the Agency denied Complainant a reasonable accommodation when it failed to provide him with a sign-language interpreter at the kick-off Combined Federal Campaign meeting intended for all facility employees. A “make-up” meeting, where only the CFC representative and three deaf employees, but no keynote speakers, were present was insufficient to remedy the situation.
