Can a Federal Employee Sue Their Employer?

Employees working for private companies can sue their employer if they have been injured or wrongfully terminated, but what about federal employees?

The answer is yes, under certain circumstances. Federal employees can sue the federal government for wrongful termination and workplace discrimination, although the process for suing the federal government is different than suing private employers. While employees of private companies may bring lawsuits against employers in civil court, federal employees must first file a claim with an independent review body rather than the court system.

However, federal employees can't sue the government for workplace injuries resulting from a government agency's negligence. Although the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) waives the government’s sovereign immunity lawsuits for injuries caused by federal agencies or employees, the FTCA does not apply to federal employees.
