MSPB Attorney for Retaliatory Discipline
Protecting Federal Employees From Backlash
For Filing Claims Or Reporting Wrongdoing
Employees of the U.S. government are protected from retaliation for whistleblowing on illegal activity or filing claims or grievances. Nonetheless, federal agency employers sometimes take adverse action against an employee who is “making waves” under cover of trumped-up misconduct or performance issues.
The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., stands up for federal employees who are being unfairly targeted for retaliatory discipline after speaking up or exercising their rights. From offices in Dallas, Washington, DC, and Atlanta, our legal team advocates for federal-sector employees throughout the United States. We assert your protections in all phases of Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) proceedings.
Experienced Representation For Federal Employer Retaliation
Attorney Bobby Devadoss began his legal career as an attorney for the Federal Labor Relations Authority and later accepted a position with the Federal Aviation Administration. He uses those insights everyday in his private practice, representing federal government employees who face termination, demotion or suspension. He is adept at looking at the whole equation and identifying patterns of retaliation and abuse of power.
The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., has represented clients who were targeted for discipline or removal actions based on supposed poor performance or misconduct after:
- Exposing fraud or criminal activity
- Reporting regulatory violations
- Reporting sexual harassment
- Filing or corroborating a discrimination claim
- Taking work injury, disability or FMLA leave
- Complaining about mismanagement or gross waste of taxpayer funds
Retaliation can take many forms. The stellar employee who raises concerns or calls a whistleblower hotline is soon denied vacation, taken off plum assignments and passed over for promotions. Then come poor performance reviews and close scrutiny for any conduct violation or insubordination. Bobby Devadoss is skilled at tracing management’s “before and after” behavior to shine the light on retaliation.
Sometimes our firm can intervene to halt unjustified and retaliatory actions by exposing the motive and the lack of merit in the allegations. If it is too late or clear that the agency intends to take action anyway, we strongly state our objections in the employee investigation and response to proposed sanctions, laying the foundation for hearings and appeals before the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
