An Uncommon Advantage For Clients

Employees of the federal government are protected by the same employment laws that safeguard employees of local and state governments and private employers. Discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and retaliation are unlawful. But employees of federal executive agencies can easily be intimidated by their powerful employer. Some employees do not take action because they do not want to risk loss of either their position or their hard-earned benefits. Are you in this situation?

If you are a federal employee with employment concerns, contact my law firm for clarity and legal assistance. I have been in your shoes as a federal employee, and I can help you navigate the system.
