How to Deal with Federal Employee Discrimination

Just like employees of private companies, employees in federal workplaces have the right to be free from illegal harassment and discrimination. Federal discrimination laws have been established by Congress and prohibits employers to discriminate on the basis of color, sex, race, religion, pregnancy, disability, national origin, age, or genetic information. However, federal employees must follow a different set of rules and procedures for filing a complaint against their employer with the EEOC.

How to Know if you have been Wrongfully Terminated?

It is a very unpleasant feeling when your boss calls you to their office and hands over a box, telling you to gather your things because you've been fired. In some cases, you see it coming, and in some cases you don't. Whatever the case, you should contain yourself and try not to burst out in anger, as it will only make things worse. However, do ponder over whether you have been fired for a valid reason or wrongfully terminated.

When is the Right Time to Hire an Attorney in a Retaliation Case?

Many times, we come across a situation at our workplace where we know what the right thing to do is, but the consequences of doing it isn't in our favor. If you have decided to take action by reporting your employer for their discriminatory acts or violation of any laws, there is a high chance they may retaliate and take drastic measures against you. Most people depend on their job to feed their families and even the thought of losing it is enough for them to take back their decision.
