Employment Law – Federal Employees

Federal employees have many legal rights and protections relating to their employment. They also at times face a hostile and challenging work environment and a complex legal system. The attorneys of Bramnick Creed have a deep knowledge of federal employment law and extensive experience in representing federal employees. We counsel, guide, and advocate for federal employees in all aspects of employment law.

Federal Employee Personnel Matters.

Bramnick Creed represents federal employees in all disciplinary and adverse personnel actions, including suspensions, demotions, and removals. Our attorneys have extensive experience in responding to notices of proposed discipline and negotiating favorable resolutions of proposed disciplinary actions. When negotiations fail and a disciplinary action has been taken, we advocate for federal employees in appeals to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  

Federal Employee EEO Matters. 

Bramnick Creed represents federal employees in all EEO matters, including discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation. We guide our clients through every phase of the federal sector EEO process, from formal and informal complaints to agency investigations. Our attorneys are experienced litigators in the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and federal courts. 

Federal Employee Whistleblower Protection. 

Bramnick Creed represents federal employees in all aspects of federal whistleblower protection law and disputes involving prohibited personnel practices. We serve as a strategic adviser and courtroom advocate for federal employees who are victims of retaliation following protected disclosures, and guide federal whistleblowers through the OSC complaint process and appeals to the MSPB.
