MSPB Hearings and Appeals Attorney
We Represent Federal Government Employees Nationwide
In Appealing Adverse Employment Actions and MSPB Decisions
Federal employees are entitled to significant due process before they can be fired, demoted or suspended. For example, the agency must notify the employee in advance and allow for a formal response to the allegation of misconduct or deficient performance.
If the employer proceeds with the disciplinary action anyway, the employee is entitled to contest the action through the Merit Systems Protection Board. Although the MSPB itself is neutral, you are not entering a level playing field. The management officials and agency lawyers who initiated the investigation and disciplinary action have carefully engineered your present predicament.
Experienced And Aggressive Trial Lawyer On Your Side
To fight back, you need an attorney who can deconstruct the agency’s case brick by brick to reveal management’s motives, tactics and violations of the federal merit system principles. To save your job and your career, you need a trial lawyer like Bobby Devadoss who formerly worked on the other side advising and defending federal agency officials.
With offices in Dallas, Atlanta and Washington, DC, The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., represents federal employees nationwide in MSPB hearings and appeals. To arrange a free consultation, call or contact us online.
MSPB Attorney For Disciplinary Action Hearings And Appeals
We aim to prevent escalations by representing clients in employee investigations and response to written proposals for discipline or removal. If and when the employer does proceed with the adverse action, there is little recourse to stop it. You may have no choice but to serve the suspension or accept the grade reduction and then appeal the agency’s decision.
Most adverse action cases are eligible for a hearing before a Merit Systems Protection Board judge. If there is evidence of discrimination or reprisal in the employer’s action, there may be grounds to bring a complaint through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Attorney Devadoss can gauge which venue is the most advantageous for your situation.
In the MSPB hearing, we present arguments that the performance or conduct allegations are trumped up and that agency officials deliberately set you up for adverse employment action. If the MSPB judge upholds your termination, suspension or demotion, we can weigh the merits of appealing the MSPB’s decision to a federal court that handles federal employment disputes. We make a point of getting all salient points on record in the initial investigation and response to proposed sanctions.
We work with you to strategize your appeal and to achieve the remedies that will make you whole again in your federal sector career and your personal life. If we prevail, you may be entitled to:
- Reinstatement to your job
- Restoration of your pay grade and security clearance
- Removal of the adverse actions from your file
- Compensatory damages as well as back pay and legal fees
- A promotion that was unfairly denied
- Other redress appropriate to your case
