Are you a federal employee who has been discriminated against?

Discrimination in the workplace is illegal, it is wrong, and it a horrible thing to experience.

Yet discrimination - as well as harassment and retaliation - happen in the workplace all the time.

As a victim, it can be difficult to know what to do:

  • Should I speak out - or just endure it?
  • What happens if the behavior doesn't stop once I inform my employer?
  • Will my employer fire or demote me for reporting the incident?

It is important to know that the law protects federal workers from not only discrimination and harassment in the workplace, but also from retaliation by an employer for taking action to stop the behavior.

Specifically, workers are protected from discrimination and harassment on the basis of inclusion in a protected class:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Race
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Whether an individual has exercised his or her rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

If you have experienced any of the following examples of discrimination or harassment in the workplace, you should consider speaking to an attorney who specifically represents federal workers in these matters:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Racial slurs
  • Unfair treatment based on age, race, national origin, etc.
  • Wrongful job termination based on pregnancy, gender, religion, etc.
  • Unfair treatment (demotion, pay cuts, etc.) based on taking pregnancy leave or FMLA

The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., represents federal workers in EEOC claims nationwide from offices in Dallas, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C.

If you are a federal employee who has experienced any of the behavior listed above - or another example of discrimination - please do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation. We are happy to discuss you case and legal options.
