Fighting Discrimination and Sexual Harassment
of Federal Government Employees in Texas
If you are a member of a protected class of workers under federal employee rights laws, you can pursue legal remedies for employment discrimination. Employees of the U.S. government are further shielded from secondary harm in the form of employer retaliation for filing a discrimination claim. The ability to contest disciplinary action is a right not afforded to private sector workers.
At Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., we fully leverage your basic civil rights and your special due process rights as a federal government worker. Our attorneys routinely represent federal employees in equal employment opportunity (EEO) claims. We often represent those same clients in discipline or removal proceedings initiated by employers. We have the experience and resources to reveal discriminatory and retaliatory practices and hold those employers to justice.
We handle EEO discrimination cases on behalf of federal employees in Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christi and throughout Texas. Contact us today for a consultation.
Your Federal Employee and Employment Discrimination Rights
Our attorneys will vigorously pursue compensation under the following federal discrimination laws:
- Title VII (via the Supreme Court) also prohibits sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination.
- The Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits age discrimination against workers age 40 or older.
- The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits disability discrimination and failure to make reasonable accommodations.
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) prohibits FMLA discrimination for taking leave from work to care for child or family member who is ill.
- The Pregnancy Discrimination Act prohibits pregnancy discrimination in the form of punishment, denial of leave or termination.
Were you targeted, suspended, demoted or fired after filing a claim of harassment or discrimination? As a federal employee, you can challenge any unjust disciplinary action through the Merit Systems Protection Board. Our attorneys have extensive experience in response to proposed sanctions and appeals of discipline or removal actions.
Experienced Advocacy in Employment Discrimination Litigation
If you experienced discrimination in hiring, on the job or in disciplinary proceedings, Alan Lescht & Associates can determine if you have a viable case. We help clients document claims for a formal complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Once the EEOC has completed its investigation and issued its findings, we can represent you in a formal lawsuit against the federal government. We work to settle these cases out of court, but we prepare for trial. We also make every effort to preserve your job, your federal benefits, security clearance and everything else you have achieved.
