Employee Investigations and Actions


If you’re a federal employee who has been issued a proposed or actual disciplinary or adverse action, nothing is more important than understanding your rights and fighting to protect them. Your career may depend on how you respond to such investigations or actions.

Tully Rinckey PLLC’s team of proven federal employment attorneys are available to provide representation to federal employees under investigation or facing disciplinary or adverse actions. While the appeals process can be stressful, you may be entitled to have the adverse action reversed. Additionally, you could be awarded damages including full back pay, benefits, interest, and the reimbursement of attorney’s fees.

Our attorneys defend the rights of federal employees charged with a wide range of alleged misconduct, including:

We’re also available to assist with allegations of poor performance or performance-related disciplinary or adverse actions.

We stand beside you to find the best solution possible for your career, from the investigation phrase right through to appeal. Whether it’s a criminal investigation or an administrative misconduct investigation, we protect your rights. We also advise you during the disciplinary process by drafting the written response, speaking on your behalf at the oral reply, or providing counsel to you directly regarding how best to present your own defense.

If the deciding official elects to issue a disciplinary action, we assist you in negotiating for a clean record or challenging the action through the EEO, OSC, or grievance process. If the deciding official elects to issue an adverse action (removal, suspension of more than 14 days, demotion), we assist you in appealing the decision to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB). If you’re unsuccessful before the MSPB, we can help you appeal to the full MSPB and, ultimately, to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C.

The experienced, trial-tested attorneys at Tully Rinckey protect your rights and reputation with aggressive representation before the federal government. We take a personal interest in your legal matter and make sure you receive fair treatment under all applicable federal laws. We’re ready to help.
