The employment of federal employees is guided by merit system principles, in accordance with federal statutes and regulations peculiar to federal sector employment. Many federal agencies, such as the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense, have adopted independent and complex policies and procedures to address employee grievances and discipline. Federal employees who are subject to improper discipline, discrimination, and retaliation must respond promptly to protect their rights, as the opportunity to respond is often subject to very strict and short time limitations.
We are advocates for federal employees. We know the laws, regulations, and policies applicable to the various classifications of federal employees. We have successfully represented federal employees through agency internal grievance processes and before the Office of Special Counsel, Merit Systems Protection Board, the Disciplinary Appeals Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and in Federal Court. We represent federal employees faced with unwarranted disciplinary action, discrimination, retaliation, proposed suspension removal, security clearance denials, whistleblower retaliation, or who are otherwise are being subjected to an unlawful, hostile work environment.
If you are a federal employee and have an issue at work that needs to be discussed, please contact us
