Employees of the federal government, unlike most at-will private employees, maintain a constitutional right to their continued employment. Therefore, the federal government cannot take any adverse action against a federal employee’s job without providing such employee due process. What process is required and whether the government followed the appropriate process requires a complex legal analysis.
If you are a federal employee who is being threatened with disciplinary action, you may have the right to appeal such action to the Merit Systems Protection Board. The attorneys at Delegal & Poindexter can work with you to determine what rights you may have as a federal employee and whether the disciplinary action taken against you infringes upon those rights.
