What Is Different About Federal Employment Law for Federal Employees?
The country’s federal employment laws establish minimum standards for employee rights and disputes in the workplace. Federal employment laws govern employers throughout the country. However, many of these laws are different for federal employees, and in a dispute with the federal government, having attorneys who know the federal sector and it regulations intimately can make all of the difference. Plus, workplace disputes often turn on the details of the workplace and the federal workplace has different rules from the Office of Personnel Managment (“OPM”) and other sources. Having an attorney who already knows many of the rules is helpful to you.
