Default Judgement Results in Substantial Recovery

On December 28, 2015, the Department of the Army issued a Final Agency Action fully implementing an EEOC Administrative Judge’s Decision granting a Health System Specialist we represented $80,000 in non-pecuniary compensatory damages, restoring 340 hours of sick and 905 of annual leave, converting 618 hours of leave without pay to administrative leave with back pay and awarding additional pecuniary damages and full recovery of all attorneys fees incurred in the representation. The Administrative Judge had granted a default judgment in this case because the local EEO office took no action to investigate the complaint for over a year after it issued an acceptance letter.
