Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Procedures
Since federal employees may face challenges and issues in their work that differ from their private sector counterparts, the same principle holds true for the laws and regulations that govern federal employment.
Federal employment claims may be complex and strict deadlines apply to discrimination claims. If you as a federal employee miss the 45-day limit for contacting an EEO counselor, you may lose important legal rights.
The process of pursuing a discrimination claim for a federal employee is very specific and may call for advocacy from a lawyer who understands the federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) system. Our seasoned Montgomery lawyers regularly represent people facing federal employment workplace discrimination before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Merit System Protection Board (MSPB), and the courts and other bodies charged with enforcing federal employment laws.
Federal Discrimination Laws
One of the broadest and best known federal laws against discrimination is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination against government employees based on their race, color, sex, national origin or religion. Other laws provide additional protections. The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Act of 1994 (USERRA) provides certain rights to veterans and reservists while the Equal Pay Act provides that men and women must receive equal pay for equal work. and the Rehabilitation Act governs disability discrimination.
Despite the existence of these laws, illegal discrimination may still affect employment actions in the federal government. This unfair treatment may take the form of unequal pay, sexual harassment, denied promotions, retaliation, and other adverse employment actions. If you experience illegal discrimination in any form while working for the federal government, you could seek legal representation from a Montgomery County attorney well-versed in federal employment workplace discrimination law.
