Disciplinary Actions


At The Vaughn Law Firm, we know that your job is important to you, and we know that you are understandably concerned if you are facing a disciplinary action. Our experienced attorneys are dedicated to helping federal employees protect their rights and their good names against federal employment disciplinary actions.

When federal employees are facing disciplinary actions, suspension, or termination from their jobs, they have different rights and procedures that they can follow to appeal the decision. In the federal government, however, there are checks and balances built into the system that give employees the opportunity to appeal and defend their cases. Generally, the Merit Systems Protection Board is the place to bring a claim for serious disciplinary actions, such as removal, demotion or suspension for more than 14 days. For less serious discipline, the Office of Special Counsel is where your claim should be brought.
