@alaska mailman, given the apparent remoteness of your post of duty it would be difficult on your own to find out the info you need to make a claim. VMF managers/supervisors tend to know which employees are accident prone. Say a VMF supervisor tells you employees X, Y & Z have gotten into "at fault accidents". You find out that employee Y was given a transfer. So you know employee Y was involved in an accident, was allowed a transfer thus you were treated differently.

Office is in another state and they will not give any info. How do you suppose to use VMF when transfers could be from anywhere in the country

@alaska mailman, VMF should have the info on vehicle incidents. Then match that info with persons that you find out got transfers.

I am being denied a transfer based on safety record. One slip and fall January 2015 and one vehicle accident July 2015. How do I prove they have transferred other people with similar safety record.

The po attorney said they would accept 1 of the amendments which means they are not denying I have a case. Thank you. You gave me a lot to think about.

@Rivkah, the Judge making a statement like "seriously dragged out" sounds more beneficial to you than the agency. Because cases in which the Judge thinks a finding of summary judgement for the agency (against you) are NOT "seriously dragged out" cases for a Judge. The Judge is appearing to say that at least on the face of what he knows about your case that is you have a legitimate discrimination/retaliation case that will at the least require him to have a hearing. With the NRP under your belt consider yourself the 800lb gorilla in the meeting. The USPS treats you any other way than begging for you to settle shows how really idiotic they are in the face of the obvious NRP class case financial situation they are in.

Former Inspector. Thank you. We did discuss settlement with the po attorney the morning of the status conference. The judge asked a lot of questions about the case. My advocate was surprised when the judge did not want to allow discovery and made the ease conference mandatory.He made it clear that if we did not reach settlement at the conference my case would be seriously dragged out. Almost as a threat. I wonder if this will be done to all seeking nrp damages.

They use volunteers for some and specially trained ADR specialists for some conferences. The judge said they will have all the details of the case and will discuss the request for amendments at that time.

No way I'm dropping the nrp case.

@Rivkah, it is my understanding that EEOC Judges (attorney examiners) just recently have been ordered by their management to hold "conferences" early in the hearing phase of the process in hopes that the parties will settle the case instead of going through a 3+ years timeframe until the Judge actually has time for conducting a hearing then 1+ years for the Judge to issue a decision and/or damages order. In the past the Judges have not conducted "conferences" until closer to a hearing date. Judges do regularly dismiss EEO complaints if parties (more so the employee) do not participate in these "conferences". I suggest figuring out before the "conference" how much money AND job status/situation you would take to drop the case but ALWAYS start the negotiations with at least a "make whole" (if not more) remedy amount. The agency will likely provide you with a written offer of settlement after the meeting. Just make sure that you don't agree to dropping another EEO case like the NRP as part of the settlement unless you think that you are ok in doing so.

I had a status conference recently. The Judge scheduled us for an EASE conference with an ADR specialist. It's mandatory. If we want to go forward we must participate. It's supposed to facilitate settlement. Anyone have any experience with this?

Jeaane Grace 1554 This ruling is still not official after almost a year? Horrible supervisors and managers will change their horrible tunes if we are allowed to catch them in their horrible acts.

My Supervisor told me to load the truck 30 degrees in illinois,then screamed at me because I wasn’t in the lobby. I told her I would go to the lobby but needed to take off my winter coat hat mittens. She said NO NOW.

we got into an argument over I say I dont have to work in my coat.She was yelling I was yelling I got walked out.

I have a witness saying she was yelling.

I think the reasons are 2 fold they want to force a retirement and my eeo history.

I will probably win very stressful though.

/m1555 I am not recommending you post details. But do you intend to fight the removal? Might that benefit you in your other postal battles?

@Jeanne Grace, very sad indeed. I recommend you obtain the OPM Disability retirement packet and fill it out. Make sure to give your supervisor the "managers statement" he/she MUST complete and give back to you. Once you have your part, the managers part and your doctors part together and have filed a request with the Social Security Admin for retirement send ALL the forms to the OPM. I find that gathering up a bunch of medical documents attached to your doctors statement page helped me get approved. If the removal letter is for something they say is wrongdoing then don't send that to OPM. Good luck.
