If you are a doctor, nurse, dentist, or another type of medical professional who works for the Veterans Administration, then you are considered a Title 38 employee, which means you have different rights than other federal employees. Title 38 employees have to go through a different legal process if they want to appeal unjust disciplinary actions. Since Title 38 employees can’t take their cases to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), federal employers like the VA have more discretion over disciplinary actions.
That is why it is crucial to hire an experienced federal employment attorney to handle your case if you believe your career is at risk due to actions taken by the VA. A skilled lawyer can walk you through your case and build a strong legal strategy to fight the following adverse employer actions:
- Unjust job transfer
- Race, gender, age, or disability discrimination
- Unjust suspension, demotion, or termination
- Whistleblower retaliation
At Pines Federal, we are committed to using our extensive resources and knowledge of the law to fight for the rights of our clients, whether it’s obtaining injunctive relief to stop adverse action or expunging your professional files after you were unlawfully disciplined. However, if you want to successfully file a claim against a federal employer, you will need to properly file paperwork and meet crucial deadlines that are much shorter than the deadlines for private-sector employees. This can be an overwhelming process if you don’t have a legal background, which is why you should immediately consult with our lawyers to discuss the details of your situation.
Our legal team is here to provide you with the dedicated and compassionate representation you need to navigate your case and ensure your rights are protected each step of the way. Our goal is to help you understand the laws impacting your case and to give you an honest assessment of your claims.
We represent the following Title 38 employees:
- Physician Assistants
- Registered Nurses
