Employment Discrimination Whistleblower

U.S. Naval Research Laboratory whistleblower Kiki Ikossi was retaliated against after filing complaints to the Navy Research Lab HR Office for workplace gender discrimination in the early 2000s. Her attorney, NWC President, Michael Kohn, argued her case, supported by briefs from other key NWC staff.

The decision in Ikossi v. England, together with two prior Court of Appeals decisions, Butler v. West and Evano v. Reno, form a trilogy of cases that produce a roadmap that enable federal employees the right to join a federal Whistleblower Protection Act claim together with a Title VII discrimination claim and proceed to federal court on the entire claim in federal district court if the agency fails to issue a final administrative decision within 120 days.
