Federal Employment Discrimination
Birmingham Employment Lawyer for Federal Employees
According to federal anti-discrimination laws, all employers are forbidden from allowing or practicing discrimination in the workplace. Along with private and state employers, the federal government and its agencies are subject to discrimination laws. If you believe you have been adversely affected by discrimination in a federal workplace, contact Wrady & Michel, LLC. The employment law attorneys at our firm are passionate about protecting our clients' rights, and will fight to protect your right to work in an environment devoid of discrimination.
We tailor our representation to meet the needs of each individual client. Whether you only need guidance on how to handle a situation, or require representation throughout the EEO process, we are here to advise you and fight for your rights.
Defending You from Discrimination
Every workplace is required to treat their employees equally, regardless of their race, sex, age, and various other protected characteristics or traits. If the federal government violations your rights under ant-discrimination laws, you may be able to take action to redress these wrongs.
If you believe your employer has violated your civil rights, whether discrimination has affected you emotionally, lead to termination, change of duties, demotion, among others, you may be eligible to seek justice by filing a charge of discrimination. A legal professional from our firm can help you take proper legal action to seek compensation for the losses suffered in discrimination. Typically, a federal employee only has forty-five (45) days from the discriminatory act to file an EEO complaint, so you must act fast.
The EEO Process includes the following:
- Speak with your agency's EEO Counselor
- Seek a favorable outcome through an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
- File a formal complaint (pending a resolution)
- Ask for a Final Agency Determination and/or Request a hearing
With an attorney at your side, you can feel confident that your rights and interests are protected. Our Birmingham employment lawyers are committed to helping clients combat unlawful discrimination. We dedicate our time and resources to guide our clients through the complex EEO process, and fight for their rights.
