[1] Based on EEOC guidance and after careful review of issues alleged in complaints this year, we have changed some issues, thus causing a discrepancy in the total number of alleged issues in FY2020.

​[2]​ Based on EEOC guidance and upon review of Q2 cases, we are adding “Disciplinary removal" to one of the issues alleged in formal complaints filed this year.​​
