WASHINGTON, D.C. - The District of Columbia Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Aug. 15 reinstated two claims by a former government worker who alleges that the denial of her request for substantial flexibility in her working hours - known as a "maxiflex" schedule - violated the Rehabilitation Act (Linda Solomon v. Thomas J. Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture, No. 12-5123, D.C. Cir.; 2014 U.S. App. LEXIS 15671).
