Q & A Session – Appeal Processing Time at EEOC


Ask the Lawyer received the following question (paraphrased for easier reading and clarity) from a reader on a legal matter that might be of interest to the entire audience.


I sent in my appeal on my EEO case 14 months ago. The Office of Federal Operations at the EEOC assigned the case a docket number, but it is still waiting to be processed. Is it true that once a docket number is assigned, they will, in fact dispose of it?


Yes. Eventually you will receive a response or a decision.
