Some federal employees may be able to address certain unfair treatment in the workplace or disciplinary actions through the grievance process.
When navigating the grievance process, our team of attorneys will start with reviewing the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement which generally defines a federal employee’s rights and the processes for a grievance. The process may vary depending on your own Collective Bargaining Agreement.
If a grievance does not resolve or appropriately rectify the federal employee’s situation, then the next step may be arbitration. Arbitration can cover all types of disciplinary actions, including those that may not trigger any Merit System Protection Board appeal rights. Our team of employment attorneys can represent individual union members in arbitration proceedings when the employee’s own union is unable or unwilling to provide attorneys.
