Agency Cancels Removal of Southworth PC Client; Federal Career Saved

On Behalf of | Jul 21, 2020 | Federal Sector EEO, Firm News, MSPB |

Earlier this year, a large federal agency proposed the removal of our client. After receiving the proposed removal, our client contacted our federal employment attorneys with much experience in federal careers defense.

Senior Associate Jesse Kelly worked with our client to help gather evidence, research relevant legal standards, and respond to the Agency, opposing the proposed removal of our client from federal service.

Had the proposed removal been upheld, our client would have lost her federal career.

Instead, we received notification that the deciding official reviewed the documentation and determined the preponderance of evidence would not support the removal of our client. The deciding official exercised his independent judgment and cancelled the employment action.

Under the federal sector system, federal employees often receive a proposal called a proposed removal and are not just fired. The get the proposal because of their due process rights. Our federal employment attorneys can help federal employees provide evidence and argument to save their careers. This is when many people contact us.

Senior Associate Jesse Kelly explains:

“We take tremendous pride in what we do here. It is important for potential clients to reach out sooner rather than later. If you have been placed on a performance improvement plan or issued a proposed removal we would be honored to talk with you. It could possibly save your career.”

We offer free consultations to see if our federal employment attorneys believe they could help you. We would let you know if we think so, or not. Please contact us today if you are facing a proposed removal and are interested in speaking with us.
