Re-evaluate all photocopiers, printers, etc.

In our office, my unit does the most photocopying by far. However, we have the smallest, least effective machine in the office. It constantly jams and needs to be serviced regularly. So much time is spent clearing paper jams, waiting for the scanner to warm up, stapling papers ourselves because the staple function isn't working, etc. that could be spent actually doing our work. There are more efficient copies in other ...more »

Awards

Our agency gives awards on an annual basis, but we are not told why we received the award nor why our co-workers received the award. If the reasons behind the award were transparent, then employees could see what type of work product leads to an award and it might lead to motivation to work towards an award in the future. Too often, with no transparency employees are often discouraged rather than encouraged to perform ...more »

Binding EEOC Rulings

Complainants electing to avail themselves of the administrative EEO process should be bound by the final ruling of an EEOC Administrative Judge, or if there is an appeal, the EEOC Office of Federal Operations. There should be no right to file a de novo action in federal court, which essentially is a complete "do over" of the administrative litigation, resulting in an expenditure of duplicative resources. If a right ...more »

Disciplinary Actions Against Managers

Revise the No Fear Act Managers are not being punished for their illegal actions. The No Fear Act needs revision. EEOC must have authority to impose discipline. In September, 2010, EEOC Judge Macauley issued a decision in which he found that HUD retaliated against (Redacted) for a lawsuit based on disability discrimination. The Judge found that HUD had denied a promotion for (Redacted) that had been granted to every ...more »

Discipline Managers

A more efficient department makes for more productive employees. More productive employees will result if bad managers are disciplined as is required by law. This will improve morale. The Notification and Federal Employee Anti-discrimination and Retaliation (No Fear) Act states, among other things, that employees who engage in misconduct be disciplined. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo , a senior policy analyst at the EPA, was ...more »

EEOC Claims

Many man hours are spent filing, investigating, and defending EEOC complaints. These can last for years. Most employees that have been effected want to be heard and not looking for a payout. They are often disregarded. The counselers dont help, they often list only half of the issues. I myself went through this process and was never once offered a mediator. If there was a person that an employees could go to, such as ...more »

Why are the same managers who have received mulitple complaints of discrimination or unfair hiring practices being allowed to continue in their present postion and in some cases promoted. Save yourself from a lawsuit, and ...more »

Using electronics to save money of paper, storage, communication

Currently the use and storage of paper files creates a tremendous demand for paper and space. If flashdrives were used for each separate master file, there would be very little need for paper or storage space. Thousands of files could be stored in one desk drawer. This would also facilitate sending information and/or files from one office to another since the files could be e-mailed from one location to another. Also, ...more »

USE BARCODE ON CASE FILES

There is an enormous amount of redundant keystroking in the movement of files of Charge of Discrimination from the first encounter with the Charging Party/Complainant. I believe it is a well-kow fact the keystroking complex numbers, a plethora of ethnic names and a variety of Respondent spellings - e.g., is it AT&T or A T & T - can result in mistakes and/or duplication. If at the first instant - generally in Charge Receipt ...more »

When mailng, federal agencies should be required to use the USPS

Currently, many of the federal agencies use Federal Express and United Parcel Service, and the USPS for mailing. At minimum, all federal agencies should be required to use the USPS's mailing services first, especially, given, the USPS's products and services are very competitive, if not less costly, than those costs for products and services rendered by the USPS's competitors. This could potentially generate millions ...more »
