Ning Shen v. Eric Shinseki, Department of Veterans Affairs

DISCLAIMER: Our firm's past results do not predict or guarantee future success. Each case is unique. Read more

In Brief

TELG Client Ning Shen won an injunction preventing the VA from terminating her before she had resolved her EEOC complaint.

Summary of Filed Complaint

TELG client Ning Shen complained that she was the victim of discrimination and harassment based on race, gender, and national origin. The alleged harassment consisted of her supervisors’ repeated criticism of her linguistic skills, assigning her a more difficult workload than white colleagues, and other efforts to undermine her diagnoses and opinions.

What Happened in Court

Ning Shen, a doctor working for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, won an injunction from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia preventing the Department of Veterans Affairs from terminating her employment or filing a report with the National Practitioner Data Bank before she had resolved her complaints before the EEOC. Such intervention by a federal court in an EEOC matter is exceedingly rare.
