DEFAULT JUDGMENT AGAINST GSA IN PASSMAN & KAPLAN CASE

On April 6, 2015, the General Services Administration (GSA) decided not to appeal the default judgment order imposed against it in EEOC No. 5702-2012-00608X. GSA was sanctioned for its failure to timely investigate an EEO complaint, in a case where the Complainant only received the report of investigation from the Agency 506 days after the formal complaint, and 350 days after the last amendment. After a damages hearing, EEOC Supervisory Administrative Judge Stephens awarded Complainant retroactive reinstatement to the SES, back pay, $50,000 in compensatory damages, a neutral reference should Complainant decide to look for an alternative job, just under $50,000 in attorneys' fees and costs, remedial EEO training at GSA, and posting of notice. Complainant was represented by Passman & Kaplan Senior Associate Adria S. Zeldin.
