Chapter 4. Statutory and Collective Bargaining Claims
4.1 Relationship with Statutory and Collective Bargaining Protections
This HQPR is in addition to statutory and collective bargaining protections for individuals with disabilities qualified to perform the essential functions of a job, with or without reasonable accommodation, and the remedies they provide for the denial of requests for reasonable accommodation. Requirements governing the initiation of statutory and collective bargaining claims, including time frames for filing such claims, remain unchanged at the time of publishing this Reasonable Accommodation HQPR.
4.2 Statutory Anti-Discrimination Remedies
Individuals who choose to pursue statutory anti- discrimination remedies for denial of a request for reasonable accommodation may contact an EEO counselor at their respective installation within 45 days from the date of receipt of the written notice of denial or denial of appeal. (See 29 CFR § 1614.105(a)(1).)
4.3 Equal Opportunity and Diversity Management Division (EODM) Supervisory Recusals
If employees in EODM file an informal and/or formal EEO complaint related to a reasonable accommodation request, the EODM Director or designees shall recuse themselves from the processing of such complaints. In these cases, the NASA HQ Executive Director or designees will work with the Office of Diversity & Equal Opportunity (ODEO) to review and process complaints.
