San Jose Federal Employment Lawyer Nationwide Federal Employment Law Firm

San Jose Federal Employment Attorney

Government work is often considered completely secure. Once you are in, people believe, you are in forever and cannot be touched. There is certainly a high degree of job security in federal work, but it still has its challenges. In fact, these challenges are often more complicated than those in the private sector. There are so many laws and regulations surrounding government employment, navigating them can seem impossible.

If you are having difficulty at your federal job, you need a skilled, trusted lawyer to help guide you through the complex red tape. At Pines Federal, we have over 20 years of experience assisting federal employees with their career issues. From helping represent your union to fighting discrimination in the office, our breadth of experience can help with all your federal employment law needs.

Trust our firm to help represent your federal career needs in San Jose. You can reach our office by calling (888) 898-9902 today.

Providing Counsel for Federal Unions

Federal employees are not immune from the need to unionize and protect themselves. A federal union has many legal complexities to understand. Our firm has experience in consulting federal unions. We can contract with your team, providing guidance. You can trust us to help train your leaders in OWCP training, EEO/MSPB training, grievance training, OPM disability retirement training, and more. We can also help represent individuals with complaints against their employers.

MSPB Representation

The Merit Systems Protection Board is an organization that protects federal employees. It aims to protect workers from partisan harassment, keeping job qualifications strictly merit-based. Sometimes personal or political disagreements go too far, leading an employee to be suspended, demoted, or even fired.

MSPB protections are meant to extend to whistleblowers. Ostensibly, the government encourages its employees to report illegal behavior or malfeasance when they see it. In reality, these acts are often met with terminations and other retaliatory punishments.

If you believe you have been unfairly singled out, penalized for reasons that go beyond your efficacy as a worker, reach out to Pines Federal today. We can help you appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board for suspensions, terminations, demotions, pay reductions, OPM employment practices, and much more. We can also represent you in a whistleblower case. If you’ve been the victim of an abuse of authority, regulation violations, gross mismanagement, and so on, we can help defend and protect you.

EEO, Equal Employment Opportunity

EEO regulations help protect workers against discrimination. Workers who are singled out over sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, and so forth can file a complaint. Our firm can help guide you in your claim, ensuring that your claim is easily understood and credible upon review. We can help manage the flow of communication and paperwork, keeping the process smooth.

Furthermore, EEO standards protect against retaliation. Sometimes, an employer accused of discrimination can hit back. They can make the workplace insufferable for their accuser or outright fire them for acting. Workers have every right to make claims as they see fit, and even if their complaint is overruled, they deserve a peaceful work environment. At Pines Federal, we are here to defend the rights of workers. We can guide you both in your original accusation and in any retaliation you may endure later.
