The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) paid $6,750 to settle an employee’s age and racial discrimination claim. The April 7, 2000, complaint of Sally Williams, a Secretary GS-6 at the BOP office in Washington D.C., alleged denial of promotions.
Williams asserted that younger or white staff members were extended promotions, but she was denied them. Many times, Williams filled the position temporarily or even trained the person promoted over her.
Williams was represented by attorney Alan Banov. The BOP agreed to the settlement on November 20, 2001. See: Williams v. Ashcroft, 100-AO-8089x (EEOC 2001).
