If you need to blow the whistle on illegal practices committed in the workplace, then you have laws in place to protect you from adverse actions. If your employer subjects you to adverse actions in retaliation for whistleblowing, we cannot stress enough the importance of calling a seasoned federal employment lawyer to protect your rights and contest the actions. At Pines Federal, our employment lawyers are passionate about protecting the rights of federal employees. Our extensive knowledge of federal employee rights has proven to be of great benefit to the hundreds of federal employees we have represented over our years in practice.
What Are Adverse Actions?
The MSPB can review the case on a rigid set of criteria called the Douglas Factors, which will determine whether or not the disciplinary action was warranted. Whether it was a termination of employment, demotion, or suspension, the disciplinary action must match the level of misconduct that occurred promotes the overall goals and efficiency of the federal employer. Our team can build a case to prove that any adverse actions you faced were unwarranted and were an illegal retaliation against whistleblowing.
Adverse actions might include the following:
- Reduction in pay or hours
- Denial of overtime or benefits
- Suspension that lasts 14 days or more
- Termination from serving as federal civil employee
- Demotion from federal employment to a lower-paying one or reducing one’s responsibilities
