Our client worked as the Associate Regional Director at an SEC Regional Office. He supervised a staff of 52 members, including 45 attorneys. Our client entered a settlement agreement with the agency to resolve a discrimination complaint. In part, he agreed to voluntarily change positions. Unfortunately, the agency further discriminated against our client in his new position. After filing a new EEO complaint, the agency dismissed his claim, stating that he waived his age-based claims pursuant to the settlement agreement.
We successfully convinced that OFO that he had not waived his claims. The OFO ordered the agency to reinstate and investigate his claims.
