How Do Federal Employees Appeal Adverse Employment Actions?

For federal employees, a removal, suspension or demotion is likely to have devastating consequences. Aside from the financial damage, these actions can stall a person's career, hindering future career opportunities. Fortunately, most federal employees have recourse to appeal these types of actions. For many federal employees, one such avenue is an appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB). The skill and experience of your attorney can make a dramatic impact in the ultimate outcome of this appeal.

What Should I Do If I Am A Federal Employee Facing Suspension, Removal Or Other Discipline?

Adverse actions by your employer, such as a suspension, demotion or termination, can be devastating. These actions can profoundly damage the course of your career and create financial hardship as well. While federal employees are not immune from these actions, they have rights that employees in the private sector do not have. One of the most important rights federal employees have is the ability to challenge adverse employment decisions in a formal dispute process.
