After an employee investigation, federal employers may continue with a proposed disciplinary action if they have found evidence of misconduct. Whether disciplinary action has already been proposed or not, early intervention is key. It is during this critical stage that an attorney can advocate for you and prepare an effective written and/or oral reply to your employer. John P. Mahoney, Esq., Attorney at Law, can help you navigate through each phase, finding ways to shield you from career-damaging actions or mitigate any proposed penalty.
Common accusations that result in disciplinary action include:
If you have received notice of a proposed disciplinary action, it is critical that you take this notice seriously. In some cases, the action may be the final step before management decides to terminate you.
We encourage you to consult an experienced federal employment attorney about how to respond to the proposed action and your available options. An attorney may be able to help you reply to the allegations and negotiate a solution that preserves your career and your record, file a complaint or grievance if you received unfair treatment, or file an appeal with the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
John P. Mahoney, Esq., Attorney at Law, has been successful in protecting thousands of federal employee clients and reversing or mitigating proposed disciplinary actions. Our goal is always to find a solution that is in your short- and long-term professional interests. We are always ready to defend you, whether it is before your agency, the MSPB, or in federal court.
We provide free 30-minute phone consultations so you can learn more about how we can help you. When you call us, we can review your case and discuss your options. Our federal employment attorneys are dedicated to helping federal employees just like you protect their rights and careers.
