Case SUMMARY

EEOC hearing granted in DoD discrimination case

Complainant v. U.S. Dep’t of Defense, EEOC No. 570-2017-01410X

Our client worked for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) as an Intelligence Officer.  She retained us to represent her in connection with her EEO complaint.  She alleged that the DoD discriminated against her on the bases of color (black), race (African American), and sex (female) and retaliated against her for engaging in protected EEO activity.  After discovery, DoD filed a motion for summary judgment, which is a request that the judge rule in the agency’s favor without a hearing.  DoD argued that there was no evidence that the alleged discriminatory actions were based on color, race, sex, or reprisal.  We submitted a comprehensive written response, explaining why a hearing was necessary.  The EEOC administrative judge agreed, denied the DoD’s motion, and scheduled the case for a hearing.
