Re: Different Treatment
The position, department, or role you take within the agency is completely up to the powers that be. The supervisors can work you wherever, however whenever they feel is necessary. No one is entitled to be in or work in any particular position. If someone says that they do not feel comfortable working around you then there is almost a responsibility to ensure that individual does not become placed in that situation. Say for example, I have a personal issue with you that causes me to fear for my safety. then I am told that I have to work with you, if you and I were to get in to a physical altercation then the person who placed us together would be held responsible for my safety especially after I voiced my concerns and fears. So to answer your question, no it is not an EEO issue nor is it a hostile work environment. It is a CYA. Now if they did force you to work together then that would be a hostile work environment.
