You know you wanted to ask… Why would anyone decide to be a federal employee attorney who concentrates on federal employee disability related law? Ok, maybe you do not really care. Maybe you are a federal employee who has a disability and has some important issue that you just googled and this blog came up. Well, either way you are going to hear my answer. If you are reading this then you probably are a disabled federal employee who googled one of the key words that brought you to this site. So you must be wondering why I do this, right??? Either way I am going to tell you why in a series of blogs.
Reason #1 – I like fighting for the underdog. The disabled federal employee in many ways is the underdog. Usually there is some supervisor in management who is annoyed with his or her requests for Federal Reasonable Accommodationunder the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (ADAAA or ADA). Often, that supervisor has wielded his or her power in a way that harms you the federal employee seeking reasonable accommodation, OWCP Federal Workers Compensation Benefits, a promotion, or some other benefit like telework. I also find that this supervisor will do whatever he or she wants to do and hope that you the federal employee will not understand your rights or privileges. Well, my goal is to arm you the disabled federal employee with the tools to protect you and your rights. Please contact me if you feel your rights as a disabled federal employee have been infringed upon.
