In a Title VII action for employment discrimination by a federal employee, dismissal of the action is reversed where plaintiff was not required to specifically contact a person with the job title "Counselor" to meet 29 C.F.R. section 1614.105(a)(1)'s requirement that she contact an EEO counselor within 45 days of the alleged discrimination.
