Your Have Rights as a Federal Employee
"You have worked hard to get where you are today. Don't risk your career by responding weakly or inadequately. Our law firm will work tenaciously to protect your rights and your position." — Alan Lescht
Government agencies must follow specific procedures when disciplining, demoting or terminating a federal employee:
- The employer must have just cause to take action against you, such as job performance or conduct.
- The employer must notify you in writing of the proposed action and provide justification.
- In most cases, you have 15 days to respond to a proposed employment action.
- If you feel the action was unjust or not supported by the facts, you can appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
Alan Lescht & Associates, P.C., will protect your rights at all stages of the process. In addition, we will develop an appropriate response supported by the facts and the law. One by one, we will address each of the allegations, presenting mitigating factors or disputing the basis of the allegation. We will highlight your work history and how your contributions have benefited your employer in an effort to convince your employer to drop the proposed sanctions or lessen the consequences.
