I actᥙally consider your web site was really worth carefully considering.

If you dive further into this toρic in ⅼater weblog posts, th‘t would be wonderful. Actually, you could move into more distinct detail and keep the focᥙs upon each sub-topic. It's amazing how different it is when an ‘uthor strategizes about a subject in home massage bergen county nj a well investig‘ted and unbiased ԝ‘y.
My ᧐wn area of interest is certainly wellness areas, prօgamming and AI, making electronic music, yoga exercises and meditation, and vegan cooking. I know many judge harshly when I state that I abstain from meat, ᴡhich is սsually a bⲟring rеponse. Ϝor me, it's abօսt being kind, and eating what Ι've fοund for me, indiv–dually.
Υou c‘n't ascerta–n my political le‘nings or anything else by my food choices. That's ridiculous!

See PEA Postalemplyeeadvocate@juno.com. Was union president elected? Mind if I ask where you are from? Go to nlrb@gov.com and file a charge against the union under Duty of Fair Representation. When the charge hits the NBA will step in. Also if you want, file a charge against the prez with the Branch. "Do no member harm".

I am currently in the middle of an EEO situation, where because I have never been in this situation, I agreed to go through Redress. Our mediator drew up some no account reasons my PM and I should try to work it out, and gave us a time limit of 3-4 months to work it out. Once signed by all and everyone had their copies, exactly a week later, my PM and Union President retaliated against me Big Time...I immediately filed a second complaint with the EEOC, she extended my complaint until the end of October. Asked me to consider Redress a second time, I told her no.
It is now coming up on the end of my extension, nothing, not one thing has been done, except the PM has now as of last week moved and taken another position in another town, The ADR is pushing me to sign a dismissal, even though nothing has been settled. You are also correct regarding them telling us the litigation will take years. I am over 65, do not have the monies for an expensive lawyer. But I have a right to not work in a hostile environment, which I have done for 6 plus years. Can someone give me suggestions her?

There’s a discussion on PEN regarding mediation and/or REDRESS. REDRESS occurs after an employee files an informal complaint. It’s completely optional, though ADR Specialists will apply pressure on the employee to participate. In my view, REDRESS is mostly a waste of time. You end up sitting across the table from the same sociopaths that caused you to file an EEO in the first place. They are not likely to change their mind (or admit they were wrong) and they are certainly not going to authorize any kind of nonpecuniary damage payment. Most importantly, REDRESS delays your EEO complaint within a flawed system that already takes years to litigate.

Mediation ordered by an administrative judge is different in the sense that it’s not optional. The AJ will typically order the parties to “negotiate in good faith”. Usually, the complainant will submit a lengthy, detailed and accurate settlement offer only to have the agency make no counter offer, or an offer that is so insulting that it reveals failure of “good faith”. Nevertheless, an AJ cannot force or require a complainant to settle, only to make a settlement effort. Judges will also put a lot of pressure on a complainant, explaining that the process takes a long time, will drain your resources, and that there’s no guarantee of winning anything, etc., in order to get the case off their desk (which they would never admit to). They don’t really care whether your complaint has merit.

Postal attorneys are authorized to settle complaints up to $ 5000. After that, authorization comes from the Manager of Human Resources (whom the attorney refers to as their “client”), who is the person with the purse-strings. Some years ago, one of the VP’s at HQ sent out an agency-wide directive (lost in my computer when I was hit with RansomWare) that settlements involving more than (I think it was) $ 50,000, had to get authorization from his office. In effect, centralizing all serious settlement negotiations.

Mediation conferences, no matter under what name or acronym they chose to call it, are effectively a waste of time. It interferes or delays in the processing of your claims, and always adds to the cost of litigation, that very few can afford. In some cases, the pressure of negotiating settlement terms with the Postal Service, can cause the complainant additional stress and anxiety – emotional factors that are not recoverable because stress and anxiety that is specifically caused by litigation is not compensable.

I really consider your site was quite interesting. If you go deeper into this subject in future blog entries, that would be great.
Actually, you could go into higher detail and focus on each sub-topic. It's amazing how different it is when an author and thinker approaches a dizzying subect in a well researched and unbiased way. My own focus is usually wellness topics, computer programming and AI, making music, yoga and meditation, and vegan raw foods and cooked ones as well.
I understand many judge harshly when I state that I don't eat meat, which is usually a boring reponse. For me, it's about lovingkindness, and eating what works for me, personally. You can't ascertain my political leanings or anything else by my food choices. That's showing a deficit on your part, if you do!

Hello to anyone with advice. 2.5 years ago I was a newly promoted supervisor, with 20 yrs as a Clerk previously. Long story short: sexual harassment, then assault and battery. The PM shoved me against a wall and groped me. Poom said, what did you do to give him the wrong impression, then said, you go talk to him and put a stop to it. Harassment continued. I called NAPS, that guy took my story and details of proof, then represented the PM. Retaliation and discrimination. I asked to down grade, move to another office, all denied. He was finally moved, after my breakdown, he is still a supervisor. Making over 82k a year. It took postal inspection almost 2 months to come to my house. I used all my sick leave, AL. 9 months worth. Then LWOP. now finally disaility retirement. I'm still fighting, with a lawsuit. Not only for myself but for everyone who will ever endure this. The victim should not have to fight so hard for what is right. My attorney said I should have settled for 138k and went back to work in the very office I was assaulted and harassed. By the grace of God I am still alive, sometimes it doesnt feel like much of a life. Do I have any chance at all of making them change the way they are, to make them follow their own policies that they put in place? What about zero tolerance?
Or am I wasting my time?

Hello new to forum. Need a PEA my EEO attorney abandoned me. I have nearly completed extensive affidavit and reviewed 6000 discovery pages to come up with about 100 exhibits for the affidavit. In other words, much of the work is done pre-hearing, I am poor, but do not want to go it alone. Any suggestions?

Linda You should clarify this with your attorneys. Since they are handling your case, you should discuss the details with them.

Rivkah, so the past 10 years that I've been disabled retired... I should only be requesting 6 hours daily back pay? The last two years I was out so much and into lwop, workers comp wouldn't pay me if I was out the whole day they might pay me for the two hours and even that was a huge fight
