Federal Law Protects Federal Employees From Discrimination
Under federal law, federal agencies are prohibited from discriminating against federal employees and cannot treat an employee differently – as might happen with discipline or promotion selection – due to the employee’s membership in a protected class which includes sex, race, religion, or disability.
Accordingly, if you are a federal employee and you believe that you have been discriminated against in your workplace on any of the following grounds, you might be able to file a complaint with your agency or employer:
If you were discriminated against on the basis of color, race, sex, religion, age, national origin, or disability. Discrimination can occur in a variety of ways, including harassment or adverse action was taken against you based on any of these factors;
Retaliation based on a complaint you made or filed regarding discrimination, or because you helped another employee with their discrimination investigation or lawsuit;
You were denied reasonable workplace accommodations that you require due to your disability or religious beliefs.
If you or someone you know is in need of representation on a federal EEO matter, it is imperative that you contact an experienced Federal Employment Law Attorney right away. There are very strict deadlines that you must meet, or you may lose your ability to file a claim or limit the scope of your claim.
