Federal Law Enforcement Officers
More than 100,000 fully sworn federal law enforcement officers work for our government, ranging from support staff to senior executives. With such a large number of employees, it is impossible to monitor the effectiveness of anti-discrimination policies at all times. Any federal law enforcement officer can fall victim to harassment in the workplace. If this has happened to you, your case may be brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB). Enlisting a federal employment lawyer will increase your chances of success at your hearing.
Whether you are an entry-level uniformed officer or an armed field investigator, The Federal Practice Group knows how to represent you effectively. Through practicing federal employment litigation, the legal team has discovered the best and most convincing ways to demonstrate discrimination in your case. Your priority is returning your life back to normal after suffering discrimination or harassment at work. Hiring a federal law enforcement attorney may be the key to getting you a favorable settlement. Your lawyer will begin by guiding you through the EEOC complaint process, making sure you understand your rights along the way. It is important to remember that although you may feel intimidated by filing a complaint at a federal level, your rights are essential and their protection is necessary for your long-term career.
Discrimination in the Workplace
Racial discrimination, wrongful termination, sexual harassment and biased promotion practices have no place in federal law enforcement. Unfortunately, no branch is completely safe from potential violations of your workplace rights. Whether you are an employee for the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Environmental Protection Agency, you are afforded the same protections as any other federal employee. If you think these protections have been violated while at work, contact a federal law enforcement employment attorney to represent you today.
