Response: No. This age discrimination is illegal. The aggrieved applicants should file complaint with EEO Counselor at the agency. For the complaint process, click on the link below:

Do you think I have a good case. I already filed an EEO complaint

Response: Unfortunately, I am unable to come to this conclusion because I am not privy to the experience and educational background of those applicants selected and those rejected or how each job applicant did on his/her employment interview. These are the information that the EEO Counselor would investigate and get answers to before arriving to a conclusion as to whether illegal discrimination took place. Unfortunately, I cannot make this decision from where I am sitting. I am sorry.
