EEOC finds federal employee denied reasonable accommodations. Complainant filed several EEOs against her Federal agency employer including allegations of discrimination on the basis of disability, age, religion and reprisal as well as harassment. The agency then issued multiple two final agency decisions (FAD). Complainant then appealed the FADs finding no discrimination and no failure to accommodate. On appeal, the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations (OFO) held that Complainant had failed to meet her burden of proof in regards with respect to her claims of discrimination, harassment and reprisal. however, OFO found the Agency failed to accommodate Complainant. The Agency was ordered to provide reasonable accommodations and to investigate the appropriate amount of damages its actions caused to Complainant.
