After waiting through the administrative process until exhaustion, you finally received your right to sue letter. Now what do you do? In the eeoc process you just went through, you should have been looking for a federal employee attorney, legal aide foundation, state bar, city bar, or at least someone who could help you file on your own. In each district court, is a pro se clinic for people who are filing on their own. There is no charge for expert legal help. There is limitations to how much they can help, but its better than nothing. They will show you where to find a complaint template, where all you have to do is fill in the spaces. they will also give you samples and a packet to explain how to file. There is no charge for anything they give to you. Once you have written your own complaint, and you think it is close to being ready, you can take it to them for a review to make it worthy of filing, and not thrown out. I went to the clerks office to ask questions about how much it was going to cost to file on my own and explained I don’t have money. She handed me request to proceed in forma pauperis with declaration support Next, I was told when I submit my claim, I would need to have 3 copies, double punched, and the following documents (also 3 copies) summons (when I file the complaint, I will also file […]
NTEU and AFGE Union Members who work around or near Airplanes are contaminated by TCP and can be classified as having Aerotoxic Syndrome. While aerotoxic syndrome has mostly been linked to airplane pilot deaths, and passengers falling ill, it very much affects us as well. It happened to me, and it is happening to federal employee union members around the country. While working at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) I was exposed to high doses of Airplane fumes, and other toxic chemicals as a result of Airline employees leaving door’s open on the runway, so they could move over-sized baggage from the terminal to the planes, more easily. This is one of the answers given to me by the federal agency OSHA department. Another reason given was filters not working, or charcoal filters not being used. (Until I complained). Others answers were: They also left door’s open in the checkpoint area of the terminal auxiliary area, which allowed direct chemicals to enter work area from runway. When I fell Ill, and left work early, I had to fill out a form to leave work (evidence). I was bedridden for nearly 2 weeks, and examined by a work comp doctor (evidence). I also filed paperwork for work injury due to breathing in chemical fumes, and the claim was accepted by Federal Agency and the OWCP (evidence). Several other employee’s complained and missed work as well. I also filed at least 2 OSHA report’s (Form 2400), where I was made aware of the door on the […]
We are living in an era of hear and now. Through Twitter and Facebook updates, we get instantaneous news from around the world. These news of everything from celebrity citing to world disasters, happens before news outlets and government officials can respond or spin something that is not supposed to get out. With this type of freedom of news, comes a short attention span. For instance, people who live in areas where a natural disaster happens, may get a visit from the president, who uses the moment for press and photo opportunity and promises. But these people complain shortly after the presidential visits and world wide attention, because the attention span end quickly, and while it had attention and the national spotlight, it has still not recovered and continues to need help. While attention spans are very short to natural disasters and even homicidal attacks of schools or airports, changes are made to stop it from happening again. Changes like building better infrastructure, to arming and fortifying airports from attack. One such airport of special interest to me is LAX or the Los Angeles International Airport, which was attacked in 2002, yet most people who work in the airport could not tell you the details about the terrorist attack, and most people in the city of Los Angeles could also not describe the details of the terrorist attack. Unless, they are Jewish. (part of the reason, is that the government would not initially label the attack as terrorist, anti-semitic or anti-israel.) CNN Reported in 2002: A gunman opened fire Thursday […]
It would be interesting to see the new pay scales of Federal Employees of the Department of Homeland Security and TSA (because the GS pay rates are listed, and other offices of federal government, yet DHS and TSA are not. Now that Obama has ended the federal employee pay freeze through executive order. Executive order bypasses politicians, congress, senate, and really sends a message. In this specific Executive order, specific pay rates are mentioned. This is cause for celebration to NTEU and AFGE federal employee unions. EXECUTIVE ORDER ———— ADJUSTMENTS OF CERTAIN RATES OF PAY By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the UnitedStates of America, including section 114(b) of the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013 (Public Law 112–175), which provides that any statutory adjustments to current levels in certain pay schedules for civilian Federal employees may take effect on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning after the date specified in section 106(3) of Public Law 112–175, it is hereby ordered as follows:Section 1. Statutory Pay Systems. The rates of basic pay or salaries of the statutory pay systems (as defined in 5 U.S.C. 5302(1)), as adjusted under 5 U.S.C. 5303, are set forth on the schedules attached hereto and made a part hereof:(a) The General Schedule (5 U.S.C. 5332(a)) at Schedule 1;(b) The Foreign Service Schedule (22 U.S.C. 3963) at Schedule 2; and(c) The schedules for the Veterans Health Administration of the Department of VeteransAffairs (38 U.S.C. 7306, 7404; section […]
