BOP Employee’s Discrimination Claim Settled for $10,500 and Back Annual Leave

The Bureau of Prisons paid $10,500 and reinstated 200 hours of annual leave to settle a medical records employee’s discrimination claim under an Equal Employment Opportunity complaint.

Sparkey Lee Wadley worked as a Health Information Technician at the Federal Detention Center in Oakdale, Louisiana.

His EEOC complaint alleges incidents that occurred from July 24, 1998, to the week of January 11, 1999.  He alleged favoritism, lower work ratings, and overall discrimination in the performance of his duties and treatment due to being a black male.

The complaint asserted Wadley received negative work performances for being behind on his work while on annual leave or at training sessions.  The BOP settled the complaint on March 22, 2002.  See:  Wadley v. Ashcroft, U.S., Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, Case No 270-AO-9118X.
