Filed my request for an EEO ALJ hearing after receiving the Agency EEO Investigative report/binders in January 2013 after about a year in the Investigation phase. My case survived 2 combined cases "Motions for Summary Judgement" in mid 2015. Now the EEOC ALJ sent an Order Scheduling a 3 day hearing in mid August 2016. The EEOC approved her to travel from Phoenix, AZ to Fresno, CA for that week. We are having the hearing in the Fed District Bankruptcy Court in a vacant courtroom. For living in an area with a local population of about 1.5 million I will be the first agency (USPS) employee ever afforded an EEO hearing. Really more of a sad statistic than one to be proud of. Shows the state of our Administrative process is entirely unacceptable in "getting your day in court". Even in the event I win I don't expect the Agency will incorporate the Judges decision causing an automatic OFO appeal from the agency resulting in me spending another 3-4+ years either in Fed Court and/or OFO or both.

Don't worry to much about progressing on to the EEOC OFO on appeal. I did it in my case and the OFO just happened to overturn the decision (issued by the Agency) and ordered the Agency to fully investigate. I used example documents on http://eeo21.com/Fed_EEO_ofo_appeal.html to go forward in "the god awful LENGTHY" process. OFO is about 4-6 months in decisions overturning agencies before investigation and 3-4 years in appeals of an Final Agency Decision (FAD). NEVER request a FAD (unless you want to go right to Fed court and by pass the standard EEO process of a EEOC ALJ Decision). All part of "Exhausting your administrative Remedy" needed/desired by the Fed District court Judges.

jjmv, I want to add to what Former said. You stated that you "Received letter from judge giving me rights..." however inasmuch as you do have the right under this letter,you may want to file an appeal of the judges decision(with the OFO). The reason that I am saying this is because it is routine that the AUSA will claim that you did not exhaust your administrative remedies. It is a chance that they may not if you have an attorney but...

On April 19, 2016, you posted "I am filing EEO" and on April 27, 2016, you get the right to either file a case in Fed court OR request an EEO Investigation/hearing? Getting the EEO report only helps in the Fed court. So get it before going to Fed court.

Also, I forgot to mention it will be helpful to seek multiple routes in obtaining documentation to support your overall case(s). I forced responses from the USPS via a few avenues (EEOC, MSPB, Congress, OIG, Inspection Service, OWCP, Police Dept, Sheriffs Dept, US Dept of Justice and OPM) all USPS responses of which contradict other responses establishing some USPS persons in authority as "not credible" or liars. If your complaint involves a safety issue that the local Fire Dept could/would investigate I would speak/report personally the violation. Obtain the name and hopefully the e-mail address of any officials you speak with and follow up with an e-mail to that person about the status of your reported issue. If you feel you are being blown off then request a Congressional Inquiry from your local Congressman identifying the name, title, date and issue you have and which agency(s) you have the problem with.

Look at http://www.ishn.com/articles/100811-usps-t...-whistleblower-case and see how it compares to your case. Appears going directly to the Dept of Labor is how most persons get justice AFTER a long time.... I found the USPS OIG of little to no help other than the fact that if they do an investigation the report can be obtained through discovery and used against the USPS. Don't count on anything happening to the Plant Manager even if he/she is found guilty unless the USPS wants of which I highly doubt. GL and start your investigative report/file NOW going back to when the problems you have started. Obtain ALL e-mails/paper records you can on ANYTHING that you see is wrongdoing. ALWAYS keep your investigative report up to date for anyone in authority (DOL/OSHA investigators) to review when they call and for any prospective attorney to review when you seek attorney representation. Count on things (retaliation) getting a lot worst as you progress your case(s) if you elect to do so. Good luck and plan on a lengthy process.

QUESTION: there is an OSHA whistleblower retaliation complaint filed where my tour of duty was changed after filing and my plant manager refusing to pay higher level for the work I completed while I was on a different tour. My plant manager is crooked. He whites out my signature and suggestion from the Safety Health Analysis and submitted to OSHA. Their lawyer has responded with a bunch of bull and even sent me a grievance settlement for someone else to support their side. I would rather jus 32nd this whole mess save for the fact that our plant manager changed a document to be sent to OSHA. I have no idea what to do. On top of that, I have repeated rep viloations, one where I filed a formal complaint and was asked by the DRM to settle before the case goes before a jusmdge because "discrimination is hard to prove". I have no idea what to do..
