Legal Representation for Federal Employees Subjected to Adverse Personnel Action
Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB)
The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) adjudicates individual federal employee appeals of agency adverse actions, such as cause removals, suspensions of more than 14 days, reductions in grade or pay, and furloughs of 30 days or less. In addition, other types of actions that may be appealed to the Board include performance-based removals or reductions in grade, denials of within-grade salary increases, reduction-in-force actions, OPM suitability determinations, OPM employment practices (the development and use of examinations, qualification standards, tests, and other measurement instruments), denials of restoration or reemployment rights, and certain terminations of probationary employees.

Legal Representation for Federal Employees Subjected to Workplace Discrimination or Harassment
U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit. Federal employees have the right to a workplace free from discrimination. If you suspect you have been the victim of discriminatory federal employment practices, it is important to act quickly to secure legal representation.
