Employee Rights For Those Hired Under Title 5

Federal Employment Attorney Serving Nationwide

When filing an appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), Title 5 V.A. employees are treated similarly to other federal employees or employees subject to collective bargaining agreements. Title 5 V.A. employees are generally not subjected to any specialized codes when filing a complaint about discriminatory practices, or when receiving a disciplinary action.

In general, a Title 5 V.A. employee includes any non-medical federal personnel. At The Law Offices of Eric L. Pines, PLLC, our Houston federal employment lawyers can personally help you file complaints regarding discriminatory practices or whistleblower reprisal actions with the EEOC as well as appeal discipline such as terminations, demotions, and suspensions.

When working with our team, you can expect:

  • A partnership with an individualized attorney who is selected based on the specifics of your case.
  • Client-oriented legal team who prioritizes your interests and satisfaction.
