Adverse Actions

One of the most devastating things that can happen to a federal employee is the imposition of discipline. At its worst, discipline can end your career and, at best, discipline is embarrassing and a blemish on your record.  Discipline may interfere with career advancement and is not a matter to be taken lightly.  Generally, there are different procedures for disciplining employees for misconduct and for performance.  Misconduct includes charges such as absenteeism, excessive tardiness, insubordination, sexual harassment, misuse of government equipment, dishonesty and falsification of documents.  When an employee is facing on adverse action he or she should immediately contact a civil service attorney.

Security Clearances

Federal employees and government contractors that have a need to deal with issues of national security are granted a security clearance from the government.  Employees in such positions faced with loss of your security clearance most likely will result in the loss of your job.  It is important you understand your rights and how to protect against a threat to your security clearance.  Your goal is to persuade the agency that keeping your security clearance is consistent with the "national interest."  This matter is so important that you should consult an experience attorney at the start.
