Responding to Proposed Discipline: Dallas Federal Employees
Representing Texas Federal Government Employees In MSPB Proceedings
Federal employees are afforded special rights when facing adverse employment actions, including notification of any proposed disciplinary action and an opportunity to respond. If you are facing demotion, suspension or termination, The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., can help you challenge the proposed discipline and the underlying allegations.
From our principal office in Dallas, we provide skilled and vigorous representation to federal government employees in the DFW Metroplex, San Antonio, Austin, Houston and statewide Texas. In fact, we represent federal workers throughout the United States. Call us at or toll free at , or contact us online, to arrange a free consultation.
Early Intervention Is Critical In Responding To Proposed Disciplinary Action
If an employee investigation is still active, we may be able to prevent your case from being escalated to the next level. Whereas management and investigators are trying to steer your case to a certain conclusion, our sole focus is protecting your job, your benefits, your grade and your federal service career.
If management has already presented you with a proposal for disciplinary action, we can still help. Your due process rights under the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) give you a limited window to respond to the performance issue or misconduct in question. Attorney Bobby Devadoss crafts the formal response to proposed discipline to make it tougher for your employer to walk all over you.
Talk To Us, Not Them
You should never let proposed discipline go unchallenged, but you should not try to handle your own response. Management is assisted by experienced employee relations specialists and attorneys in preparing the case against you. Thus you should have your own lawyer who can counter their moves and put them on notice to follow the letter of the law.
If your discipline or removal moves forward, we make sure that everything is on the record for a subsequent hearing before an MSPB or Equal Employment Opportunity Commission judge, and we carefully word the formal response in anticipation of appealing an adverse decision.
