Accused of Misconduct? We Provide Skilled Conduct Investigation Defense

When a federal employee is accused of misconduct, a federal agency will often conduct an investigation before deciding on disciplinary measures. The moment you become the subject of an employee conduct investigation, consult a federal employment attorney immediately.

Mahoney, Esq., Attorneys at Law, PLLC, we have substantial experience defending federal workers against a wide range of accusations during an investigation. We care about your future and are dedicated to protecting your rights.

If you've been accused of misconduct and are facing an investigation, contact our federal conduct lawyers online or call (202) 350-3881 today.

  • Negligence

  • Conduct Unbecoming a Federal Employee

When facing claims of federal misconduct in the workplace, it's important to seek out competent and experienced legal counsel. Contact one of our Washington DC federal employment lawyers to help you through your conduct investigation.

What Are My Rights During A Federal Conduct Investigation?

If you are a federal employee who is facing an investigation for administrative misconduct, it is important to understand your rights and how to proceed with the investigation.

Typically, you will first be given a warning, either a Garrity or a Kalkines warning, depending on the nature of the investigation. The Garrity warning informs employees that they have a right to refuse to answer questions about the investigation, essentially the right to remain silent if their responses could disclose criminal acts. The Kalkines warning is the opposite, requiring that you answer questions regarding the purely administrative investigation.

Under all circumstances, it is recommended that you seek representation from an attorney (and union rep if applicable) to inform you of your rights at all junctures.
