EEOC ORDERS AGENCY TO RESTORE HIGHER GRADED DUTIES TO EMPLOYEES

EEOC recently caught the managers at the Voice of American using a not so common trick to deny a couple of employees promotions.  The managers simply withdrew certain duties from the employees’ jobs so that when it came time to determine who was operating at what grade level there was no basis to promote these two women to higher grades like their colleagues. When the employees filed charges alleged sex discrimination, along with other bases, EEOC spotted the illegal scheme immediately.  It not only ordered that the employees be retroactively promoted back to mid-2017, but also that the agency restore the tasks it had withdrawn that were associated with more difficult and prestigious work.
