Federal employees have rights not available to other employees, but invoking those rights can be confusing and complicated. ALG is a national leader in understanding how to invoke the many different laws that apply to federal employees and how to leverage those laws to protect your rights. We have represented federal employees in the Nation’s Capital and the Metropolitan Washington, DC, area in hundreds of cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), and the Office of the Special Counsel (OSC).
Federal employees nationwide and worldwide count on ALG to defend them against discipline such as removals and to protect them from reprisal and discrimination. ALG champions the rights of federal employees in the face of harassment and retaliation. We protect against wrongful termination and unjustified personnel actions, such as removal/termination, suspension, and reduction in grade or pay/demotion. Everyday we represent employees in the following claims:
- Whistleblowing retaliation and disclosures
- Disability discrimination, requests for accommodations and disability retirement
- FMLA disputes and retaliation
- Wrongful termination or unfair suspensions
If you are an employee or applicant of the federal government and think you’ve been treated illegally, contact us. Our attorneys are committed to protecting and enforcing your rights. During an initial consultation, we will interview you so we can thoroughly understand your unique situation. We will evaluate the legal claims you may have, weigh the strengths and weaknesses of your claims, and advise you on what relief you might achieve if you pursue your claims. Relieve can include back pay, benefits, damages for emotional harm and distress, and, in most cases, attorney fees and costs.
For Federal Government Employees
Discipline – Removal and other Discipline
Federal employees enjoy rights and protections that other types of employees do not. At ALG, our attorneys have valuable experience in representing employees of the federal government in the pre-discipline phase before facing discipline and afterwards, challenging discipline at the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
