EEOC Case No. 570-2006-00660X
Our client was a GS-14 Department of Labor employee. He is African-American. Our client’s supervisor told him that the agency would give him a non-competitive promotion to a GS-15 position when the incumbent retired. However, the agency later required our client to interview for the position, and did not select him. Instead, it selected a white female employee who was our client’s subordinate. We convinced an EEOC Administrative Judge that the agency’s decision was discriminatory. The judge awarded back pay, front pay, compensatory damages, and attorney’s fees.
