Advocating for Federal Employees in EEOC Hearings

At Passman & Kaplan, P.C., Attorneys at Law, we are committed to putting an end to all forms of discrimination, including sexual discrimination and harassment. We are known for representing federal employees faced with retaliation for blowing the whistle on illegal behavior in their workplace.

We also fight back against discrimination based on violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act, denial of leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or retaliation for taking FMLA leave.

Our legal team offers strong advocacy and legal counsel to federal employees with discrimination claims before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). We have experience seeking to settle EEOC claims through mediation. Our law firm's employment law attorneys also handle EEOC hearings before administrative judges or a federal jury or judge.

Representing Employees in MSPB and Other Federal Agency Hearings

We are known for representing federal employees in Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) cases involving adverse action appeals, whistleblower claims and retirement issues. Our law firm also has a national reputation advocating for clients in federal employment-related proceedings before the:

  • U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC)
  • Office of Personnel Management (OPM)
  • Department of Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals
  • GSA Board of Contract Appeals

Offering Strong Advocacy and Legal Counsel to Unions and Union Members

At P&K, we take pride in representing unions and union members with unfair labor practices (ULP) complaints. We are known for our zealous protection of union rights in hearings before the:

  • Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA)
  • Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS)
  • Federal Service Impasses Panel (FSIP)
  • Public Employee Relations Board (PERB) for D.C. government employees
  • The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for private sector employees

Representing Private Sector Employees

We advocate for private sector employees at every organizational level. Whether you have been discriminated against in hiring, promotions or discipline, sexually harassed, denied a reasonable accommodation for a disability or left your job without receiving all accrued pay and benefits to which you are entitled, we can help you navigate through the maze of the bureaucratic employment law procedures.

Handling Worldwide Security Clearances

Certain jobs in the government and private sector require federal security clearances. Our federal employment law attorneys have helped contract employees and federal employees obtain or retain security clearances through their agencies' review processes or through appeals to the Department of Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals.
