After Alling saw the April 1, 1998 letter from Berkley, she discussed the complainants request with chief of staff Joseph Mooney.
C-20, C-21, C-22) The complainant informed them he was on antidepressant medication and was seeing a psychiatrist. After conciliation failed, the complaint was certified to public hearing on January 21, 2000, in accordance with General Statutes 46a-84(a). C-3) Due notice of the public hearing was issued to all parties and attorneys of record on January 31, 2000, in accordance with General Statutes 46a-84(b) and 46a-54-90 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies ("the regulations"). In August 1997, he voluntarily resumed his position as Revenue Examiner-1, with a concomitant decrease in salary. Sometime, preparation could even take a week or more. For more significant matters (e.g., if a revenue examiner needed to see the tax returns of the audited taxpayers vendors), he would have to return to the office to research information in office files or data banks. 65-66, 83; Mc Kellar, 103, 128; Lyons, 248, 250-51) 15. The revenue examiners supervisor and the tax unit manager would generally attend such conference; occasionally, the revenue examiner himself would be involved. Mc Kellar, 103-04) In all of his years of service, the complainant never attended and was never asked to attend a single post-audit conference. Although Mc Kellar was actually looking for certain taxpayer files that required immediate attention, at the time neither the colleague nor the complainant knew why Mc Kellar was there, and the complainant was offended and upset by the apparent invasion of his private office and personal effects. From March 9 through March 23, 1998, the complainant was on medical leave due to emotional stress. Thereafter, the parties filed post-hearing briefs and reply briefs, and the record closed on June 1, 2001. In December 1991, the complainant became an Interstate Revenue Examiner (still in the excise field unit), with an increased salary comparable to that of a Revenue Examiner-5. In 1992 or 1993, the complainant began to suffer from minor depression and sought treatment from Dr. After Hameroff placed the complainant on antidepressant medication, the complainants condition stabilized and he was able to continue to work. If the revenue examiner was traveling out of state, he would obtain this information upon his return to the office. Upon completion of the meetings with a taxpayer, a revenue examiner would return to the office to conclude the audit, which might require numerous telephone calls to the taxpayer, additional information from the taxpayer, and more research in DRS files or data bases. This incident exacerbated the complainants depression and his discomfort working with Mc Kellar. Saksena, 24; Roy, 165-67, 172) Later Roy discussed the complainants request with Anne Alling, the DRS human resources administrator. Lyons, who claims he did not know if employees were allowed to work at home, told the complainant that he "would run it through the chain of command" and get back to him. Cleary briefly discussed the request with Roy and left a message for her supervisor, Hans Spalter; about a week later, she spoke with Alling. Lyons, 244) Mc Kellar likewise was aware of the complainants health issues; when he had spoken to the complainant by telephone on March 17, 1997, the complainant told him that he was depressed and taking medication. I have advised him against going into his office but agree that he can perform work from his home or in the field. After Roy received Berkleys letter, she prepared the paperwork needed to put the complainant on full time leave under the FMLA until May 1, 1998. The complainant also telephoned Lyons and asked Lyons to bring him a file to work on at home. Lyons reported the complainants request to Mc Kellar, who in turn spoke with Cleary. When the complainant called in sick in late March, and spoke with Lyons, Lyons discerned that the complainant was suffering from "emotional or mental problems." (Test. On April 1, 1998, Berkley sent Roy a letter via facsimile transmittal in which he stated, Sharad Saksena will be unable to assume his full work responsibilities for approximately four weeks because of medical problems.
