VA Federal Employees
Veterans Affairs employees fall within unique laws and policies of the federal government. Title 5 employees include any non-medical personnel while Title 38 employees include medical personnel such as doctors and nurses. In addition to these two employment categories, some jobs are considered a Title 38 Hybrid. These positions include physical therapist, pharmacist, and licensed practical/vocational nurse. Hybrids are covered by Title 38 for appointment, advancement, and certain pay matters, and Title 5 for performance appraisal, hours of duty, adverse actions, reemployment rights, and reduction-in-force, among others.
The laws governing VA employees are the same as other federal employees in some areas but are different in others and can be particular to the VA employee type. At Pines Federal, we have a discerning and deep understanding of the rights and responsibilities of VA employees.
Our experience can help you with:
- Administrative Investigations Board
- Disciplinary Appeals Board
- Professional Standards Board
- Equal Employment Opportunity cases
- Merit Systems Protection Board issues
Employees facing disciplinary action have a champion at Pines Federal. We can help you with both your oral and written responses. The presence of progressive discipline in government is one reason why you need highly skilled legal help in these cases.
