EEOC Docket No. 570-2012-00096X
Our client was a federal employee of the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). He filed an EEO complaint for disability discrimination in violation of the Rehabilitation Act. We represented the client at a hearing before an EEOC administrative judge. Based on the evidence and legal arguments we presented, the judge agreed that HUD discriminated against our client. The EEOC administrative judge ordered HUD to reinstate our client to his position and to allow him to telework as a reasonable accommodation for his disability. The judge also awarded our client compensatory damages, attorney’s fees, interest, and nearly four years of lost wages and benefits.
