From: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT

Thank you for contacting the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). This is an automated response to the EEOC FOIA email box, and is not a determination on your request for records. If it is determined that your request is a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), it will be forwarded to the appropriate FOIA component within 10 working days of its receipt. You will also receive an official acknowledgment that your FOIA request has been received and when you can expect a response.

This office is open from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays. Requests submitted after close of business are not deemed received until the next business day. FOIA allows government agencies 20 business days to issue a determination on a FOIA request for records. Additionally, agencies may extend their response time by 10 business days in unusual circumstances, and toll the 20-day response time until a response is received to a reasonable request for clarification or fee information. You will be notified in writing if such an extension or tolling occurs.

While the EEOC will forward electronic responses, including records granted, in accordance with the FOIA, the official determination will be issued in paper format, including an original signature. Therefore, if you did not provide a physical mailing address in your original e-mail, we will be unable to issue a determination on your FOIA request.

You may contact our office at any time between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:30 pm at 202-663-4500 or by fax at 202-653-6034.

FOIA Appeal

Dear Administrator:

This is an appeal under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. ß 552.

On 29September2014 I made a FOIA request to your agency for any/all available public records naming any of several aforementioned airlines in discriminatory practices vis-a-vis the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Human Intervention Motivation Study (HIMS) program. On 12November2014, your agency denied my request pursuant to several subsections of the FOIA indicated in the attached letter. Copies of my request and the denial are enclosed.

The information which I have requested is clearly releasable under FOIA and, in my opinion, may not validly be protected by any of the Act's exemptions.

I trust that upon re-consideration, you will reverse the decision denying me access to this material and grant my original request. However, if you deny this appeal, I intend to initiate a lawsuit to compel disclosure.

As I have made this request in the capacity of a legal advocate, and this information is of timely value, I would appreciate your expediting the consideration of my appeal in every way possible. In any case, I will expect to receive your decision within 20 business days, as required by the statute.

Thank you for your assistance.

Very truly yours,

B. Weyhrauch

From: RHONDA DURHAM

Good afternoon Ms. Alyn,

FOIA Appeal
Dear Administrator:
This is an appeal under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. ß 552.
On 29September2014 I made a FOIA request to your agency for any/all available public records naming any of several aforementioned airlines in discriminatory practices vis-a-vis the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Human Intervention Motivation Study (HIMS) program. On 12November2014, your agency denied my request pursuant to several subsections of the FOIA indicated in the attached letter. Copies of my request and the denial are enclosed.
The information which I have requested is clearly releasable under FOIA and, in my opinion, may not validly be protected by any of the Act's exemptions.
I trust that upon re-consideration, you will reverse the decision denying me access to this material and grant my original request. However, if you deny this appeal, I intend to initiate a lawsuit to compel disclosure.
As I have made this request in the capacity of a legal advocate, and this information is of timely value, I would appreciate your expediting the consideration of my appeal in every way possible. In any case, I will expect to receive your decision within 20 business days, as required by the statute.
Thank you for your assistance.
Very truly yours,
B. Weyhrauch

Thank you for contacting the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). This is an automated response to the EEOC FOIA email box, and is not a determination on your request for records. If it is determined that your request is a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), it will be forwarded to the appropriate FOIA component within 10 working days of its receipt. You will also receive an official acknowledgment that your FOIA request has been received and when you can expect a response.
This office is open from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays. Requests submitted after close of business are not deemed received until the next business day. FOIA allows government agencies 20 business days to issue a determination on a FOIA request for records. Additionally, agencies may extend their response time by 10 business days in unusual circumstances, and toll the 20-day response time until a response is received to a reasonable request for clarification or fee information. You will be notified in writing if such an extension or tolling occurs.
While the EEOC will forward electronic responses, including records granted, in accordance with the FOIA, the official determination will be issued in paper format, including an original signature. Therefore, if you did not provide a physical mailing address in your original e-mail, we will be unable to issue a determination on your FOIA request.
You may contact our office at any time between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:30 pm at 202-663-4500 or by fax at 202-653-6034.
Thank-you,
EEOC Office of FOIA Programs
