Merit Systems Protection Board Attorney: Speak with an MSPB Lawyer
The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSBP) has nine standards that govern the federal workforce as part of the executive branch. The MSPB is supposed to protect the Federal merit system against prohibited practices, partisan politics, etc. If a federal employee wants to appeal something (like a demotion, pay discrepancy, wrongful termination, denial of a reasonable accommodation, etc.), an appeal should be filed with the Merit System Protection Board.
Why Hire an MSPB Lawyer
The MSPB appeals process can be challenging for an employee, or former employee, to navigate. It is afterall, the federal government, so it can be slow and bureaucratic. The process itself must be followed exactly and failure to do so (even due to a misunderstanding) can lead to unfavorable results for the employee.
When you file an appeal with the MSPB the case goes before a judge. The department you work for will have an attorney representing them in that matter. If you don't hire an employment attorney to represent you with the Merit Systems Protection Board, you'll have to prepare all of the legal documents on your own and represent yourself before a judge - against a trained attorney. It can be overwhelming even for professionals with business and writing experience.
