We Are the Lawyers for Federal Employees

FEDERAL EMPLOYMENT LAW ISSUES

As a federal employee, you probably know that while federal employment law is similar to standard employment law, there are several variations in the rights you have as a federal employee to protect your job. Whatever issue you are facing, whether discipline or discrimination, it is key to have an attorney on your side who understands employment law as it relates to federal employees and knows how to navigate through the administrative processes available to federal employees.

Whether your legal issue involves, our firm can provide the exceptional legal counsel you need to address the problem professionally. With extensive experience in litigating before the EEOC, MSPB, and OSC, our attorneys are prepared to protect the rights of federal employees who need assistance in resolving any type of federal employment law matters. The depth of knowledge of our legal team with regard to this complex area of law is of great benefit to those who have legal matters that they need to defend against, litigate or resolve.

  • EEO Complaints and EEOC Hearings
    The Federal Practice Group represents federal employees at all stages of the EEO process, from the informal complaint stage, which can involve EEO Counseling or Mediation/Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), to the formal complaint stage, including the agency investigation of your formal complaint, and finally, at the hearing process before the EEOC. Our federal employment law team is well versed in the substantive laws protecting federal employees from discrimination, including Title VII (which prohibits federal agencies from discriminating against federal employees on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, and retaliation/reprisal for participation in protected activity); the Rehabilitation Act (which prohibits federal agencies from discriminating against federal employees on the basis of disability); the Equal Pay Act (which requires federal agencies to pay male and female federal employees the same for the same work); and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) (which prohibits federal agencies from discriminating against federal employees on the basis of age).
  • MSPB Appeals and Adverse Actions
    The Federal Practice Group represents federal employees before the MSPB in all matters over which the MSPB has jurisdiction, including adverse action (e.g., removals, demotions, suspensions of more than 14 days) appeals, whistleblower retaliation appeals, USERRA and VEOA appeals, and retirement matters. The MSPB is known for its very efficient appeal processing, so having an attorney who understands your due process rights and is familiar with the MSPB appeal process is crucial to your ability to successfully challenge your federal agency.
  • OSC Complaints and Whistleblower Retaliation
    The Federal Practice Group stands behind federal employees who are facing retaliation because they "blew the whistle" on fraud, waste, or abuse by a federal agency. We can represent you in filing a prohibited personnel practice claim with OSC if you have faced such retaliation for being a whistleblower, and can also assist federal employees who are looking for a safe place to make a protected disclosure of violations of a law, rule or regulation; gross mismanagement; a gross waste of funds; an abuse of authority; and a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety.
