BOP Employee Receives Annual Leave Hours to Settle Racial Discrimination Claim

The federal Bureau of Prisons paid $1,000 in attorney fees and awarded 100 hours annual leave to settle a racial discrimination claim filed under an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint.

Sharon Lyles, a Personal Management Specialist in BOP’s Washington D.C. office, alleged a pattern of harassment in 1997 that began after she became a supervisor.  Her complaint details in six pages of facts a detailed pattern of harassment by two supervisors, which resulted in low performance audits and internal investigations.

Her complaint was filed on April 8, 1998.  A settlement that paid her attorney, E. Ned Sloan of Washington D.C., $1,000 and restored 100 hours of annual or sick leave to Lyles was reached on January 16, 2001.  See: Lyles v. Reno, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Case No  100-99-8096X.
