Federal supervisor engaged in per se reprisal. Complainant filed an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint alleging discrimination based on her age, religion, race, and reprisal. Following the investigation the Agency issued a final decision (FAD) concluding that Complainant failed to prove the Agency subjected her to discrimination and a hostile work environment. Complainant appealed.
On appeal, the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations (OFO) held that the supervisor engaged in per se reprisal when he told Complainant that her complaints about the EEO issues she was reporting were causing him extra work and stress, threatened her with termination, and labeled her as someone who does not work well with others.
