Federal employment law addresses a wide range of legal issues under a multitude of federal statutes:
Each federal agency has an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) process for filing informal and formal complaints of discrimination. Once you have exhausted the EEO process, charges may be heard before an administrative law judge at the EEOC who enforces federal employment discrimination laws along with regulations, policies, and practices to ensure equal employment opportunities. You may also have the right to sue in the U.S. District Court. We represent federal employees through the EEO process, before the EEOC, and in federal court. We also have experience in Chicago employment mediation and arbitration. We frequently represent federal employees from each federal agency, including postal employees working for the United States Postal Service.
