When federal employees are wrongfully terminated

Losing a job is a terrible thing to go through. The initial shock, followed by uncertainty make this a very stressful situation.

There are many legitimate reasons why an employer may fire an employee.

But when someone loses their job for illegal reasons, it is critical for the employee to be aware of his or her legal rights.

Examples of wrongful termination

  • Termination based on discrimination: Firing an employee because of his or her age, gender, sexual orientation, political affiliation, race, nation origin, religion, disability, pregnancy or inclusion in another protected class
  • Termination based on retaliation: Firing an employee because he or she reported wrongdoing within the workplace/governmental agency

At what point should an employee contact an attorney? As soon as possible – even before the termination occurs, especially if the employee is subject to an internal investigation.

These cases can be extremely complex. A wrongful termination claim involving a federal employee may involve The Merit Systems Protection Board or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

It is critical to work with a federal employment law attorney who understands how these agencies operate, and how to protect the rights of an employee.

You don’t have to face this alone

Do you suspect you were fired for a discriminatory reason? Did your employer fire you after you reported suspicious or illegal activity within your organization?
