If you are a federal employee who feels as they have been subject to discrimination and/or retaliation in the workplace, then please do not hesitate to reach out to talk with one of the attorneys on our team about the discrimination you believe you are experiencing. We can discuss with you whether you may have a case before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the “EEOC.”
The Civil Rights Act of 1964, the American with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”), and other federal statutes protect federal employees from discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability, and prior EEO activity in the course of employment.
Employment Discrimination and Retaliation
Employment discrimination can take multiple forms. It can look like a hostile work environment when the mistreatment is so severe or pervasive. It can be a personnel action that was taken against an employee for discriminatory reasons. The most common types of EEO complaints that federal employees experience may include:
- Race/Color Discrimination
- Disability Discrimination
- Religious Discrimination
- Sex Discrimination
- Sexual Harassment
- Sexual Orientation Discrimination
- Discrimination based on National Origin
- Hostile Work Environment (“Severe or Pervasive”)
- Pay Discrimination
- Age Discrimination
- Retaliation for Protected Activity
Our team of attorneys specializes in representing federal employees with these types of discriminatory and retaliatory issues before the EEOC every day. We understand that when a federal employee is experiencing discrimination and/or retaliation at work, it can cause a great deal of stress. Our attorneys can help ease that stress by consulting with you on your discrimination issues and guiding you through the steps of an EEO action.
