Case alleging racial discrimination in NASA’s employee evaluations set to move forward

Thousands of current and former NASA employees saw a major step forward in a racial discrimination case that’s nearly a decade old. The case can now proceed as a class action lawsuit after Supervisory Administrative Judge Stephanie Herrera at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission certified two classes of employees on Sept. 30. The employees who originally filed the case will represent more than 2,000 agency workers.
