Federal Employee Issues

At Farber Legal in Rockville/North Bethesda, Maryland, our lawyers represent employees of the federal government throughout Maryland and the Washington, D.C., area. We are one of the few Maryland employment and labor law firms dealing extensively with the following federal government related matters:

  • Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) hearings
  • Office of Personnel Management hearings
  • Office of the Special Counsel appeals of civil service irregularities
  • Whistle blower statutes
  • Obtaining security clearances
  • Revocation of security clearance
  • Appeals
  • Internal grievances
  • Internal EEOC claims
  • Notices of intent to remove from Federal service.

Federal employees enjoy many due process protections to ensure that they are not discriminated against for political beliefs. MSPB hearings often concern proposed removal actions (terminations). Our lawyers have a track record of favorable outcomes in getting removal actions rescinded and getting the removal action expunged from employee records for privacy reasons.

Federal workers must follow different procedures from other employees when filing sexual harassment and other types of discrimination claims. Many employers have agreements to mediate discrimination cases and other complaints. Our attorneys find that an overwhelming majority of these cases settle when we get involved in the mediation process.

If an employment issue cannot be resolved through mediation, the agency has six months to investigate. After six months, you can ask for an administrative law judge from the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) to hear your case. Our lawyers represent government employees throughout the hearing process.

For more information about federal public sector employee matters, contact a lawyer at Farber Legal. We offer an initial consultation at a discounted fee. We represent clients in Maryland and the Washington, D.C., area, including Rockville and North Bethesda.

Mindy, thank you for taking a risk on this issue and standing so tall for the animals who need us. You stand so tall and courageous and compassionate!

Ms. Farber is an excellent attorney and a very compassionate human being. That is why for quite a number of years, I have referred my client's employee claim matters to her and no one else. She has always represented them in a first class fashion and I have never heard one complaint. I highly recommend her for the highest rating possible.

Mindy,
