Discrimination

Unlawful discrimination, harassment, and retaliation can have a serious impact upon federal employees. Our federal employment attorneys have experience prosecuting complaints before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under various statutes including Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act of 2008, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995, the No FEAR Act of 2002, and the Genetic Information on Discrimination Act of 2008.

These acts generally prevent certain forms of discrimination and harassment and retaliation with respects to the terms, privileges, and conditions of employment. For instance, if you faced a personnel action, including denial of employment, reassignment, non-selection, discipline, termination, or hostile work environment, and it was due to unlawful discrimination or retaliation, then you very well have an actionable claim.

Further, unlike the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Commission's jurisdiction extends to almost all federal employees and agencies.

If you believe you have been facing unlawful discrimination, harassment or retaliation, please feel free to contact our federal EEO attorneys for a free consultation. We will be happy to evaluate your case and see if it is a case we would be able to help you with. We will see if we can represent you in light of the remedial or make whole nature of the statutes and the nature of your case.

Although we prefer to represent employees from the beginning of the process, in many cases, we accept cases with employees who have already begun the process. Our representation is usually best if we can represent federal employees or former federal employees at all stages of the process including pre-complaint counseling, the formal complaints process, the investigation of complaints, settlement of complaints, EEO hearings, and any resulting awards, including obtaining actual damages, liquidated damages, compensatory damages, declaratory relief, injunctive relief, equitable relief, attorneys' fees, and any other relief available under the law.

The ability to obtain certain relief depends upon the facts of your case. If you're interested in speaking with one of our federal employment attorneys, please feel free to contact us today.
