A federal employee retained us after she received a proposed 14-day suspension for alleged careless work performance and improper conduct. She had a stellar performance record with no history of discipline. However, our client had recently filed an EEO complaint because the agency failed to provide reasonable accommodations. We submitted a written response to the proposed suspension, arguing that the agency was retaliating against our client for filing an EEO complaint. The agency reduced the penalty from a 14-day suspension to an admonishment.
