Federal Whistleblower Law

Federal employees are protected by the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989. If you reported agency misconduct such as a violation of the law, gross waste of agency funds, abuse of authority or endangering the public health or safety, you are protected under the law. This means it is unlawful for your employer (the federal government) to retaliate against you for reporting wrongdoing. You are protected from harassments, termination, demotion and other retaliatory actions. Were you fired for reporting wrongdoing? Talk to our attorneys about your rights and options.

Merit Systems Protection Board

The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) is a federal agency that is tasked with reviewing the actions of the Office of Personnel Management. If you are a federal employee who has suffered an adverse action in the workplace, you can appeal the adverse decision. We provide skilled and experienced representation to federal employees in MSPB appeals.

Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces the federal laws that prohibit job discrimination. These laws include Title VII, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
