It’s one of America’s dirtiest big secrets.

Comment on White House Summit For ‘New Generation’ of Workers by Pam Kelly http://abusergoestowork.com/white-house-summit-for-new-generation-of-workers/#comment-42316 Thu, 13 Aug 2015 18:37:43 +0000 http://abusergoestowork.com/?p=11861#comment-42316 I have a 27 year career as a Federal employee and am 55 years of age. Two and a half years ago, my Agency intentionally made my work conditions intolerable in an effort to push me out the door. While I also have some health/disability issues, I had a reasonable accommodation and was getting along well in my job. I have an advanced college degree, and much of my work involved research and writing. They successfully pushed me out the door insofar as I filed an EEOC case, used up my remaining leave, FMLA, etc. I have been living on savings and hardship TSP withdrawals as my EEOC case slowly proceeds. Whether it be age and/or disability discrimination, the management trend of purposely making a Federal employees’ work conditions intolerable in an effort to push them out the door is all the rage right now. It is an effective way for abusive managers, cronies and Agency heads to get rid of a Federal employee, regardless of the reason, and at the same time, evade many of the civil service protections available to the Federal employee. While the Federal employee can still pursue legal options, the cost and time involved in doing so is virtually prohibitive, and the abusive managers and Agency heads very well know this. Thus, the odds are high they will never be held accountable in any way for their abusive conduct. The bottom line is this really is going on and needs to be publicly addressed and discussed. At 55 with health issues and a successful 27 year Federal career up to this point, forced retirement is certainly not something I am prepared for, and the truth is very few options are realistically available.
