BOP Settles Guard's Racial Discrimination Complaint for $5,000

David Eugene Weaver, who is black, filed a grievance with the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaining that a former supervisor discriminated against him on the basis of race while he was a GS-7 senior correctional officer at FCI-Allenwood in Pennsylvania. He specified that she disrespected and mistreated him in the presence of staff and prisoners, thus creating a hostile work environment. She also allegedly discontinued a training position he was involved with that could have resulted in promotion.

On August 28, 2000, the BOP settled the complaint by agreeing to pay Weaver $5,000 and reinstate him at FCI-Allenwood at GS-7, step 5. See: Weaver v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, EEOC Case No. 17-A0-8171, Agency Case No. P-97-9331.
