Inquiry Into Alleged Operating and Management Problems in EEOC's Office of Review and Appeals
FPCD-82-68: Published: Aug 25, 1982. Publicly Released: Aug 25, 1982.
- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed allegations made by Equal Employment Opportunity Commission employees about poor personnel management and other problems at the Commission's Office of Review and Appeals (ORA).
Nineteen allegations were made involving a wide range of management and operating problems such as productivity, records management, employees' time and attendance, use of overtime, morale, and communications. GAO found that many of the allegations were valid and that Commission officials were aware of the problems and were taking actions to address them. The report discussed the 19 allegations, GAO observations regarding them, and corrective actions taken or planned; a chronology of events leading to the dismissal of the former ORA Director and the appointment of an Acting Director; and the Commission's reasons for not acting sooner to correct the alleged problems.
