Plaintiffs need only allege facts that are within the reasonable scope of their EEOC investigation may later add more detailed facts in a lawsuit so long as they are within the reasonable scope of the investigation.

“Plaintiff merely provides additional facts in her complaint that were not in her EEOC charge. In particular, she identifies the individuals mentioned in her charge who were allegedly promoted over her and who received higher wages for the same work. This is not an issue in which the Plaintiff is attempting to assert wholly new claims and the Court must determine whether the new allegations were reasonably expected to grow out of the EEOC charge.” Id. at 5 (internal citations omitted).
