Federal Employees

Fidlon Legal is one of the few Atlanta employment law firms that specializes in representing federal government employees. Our attorneys are particularly experienced at representing federal employees in the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint process.

The EEO complaint process is the exclusive forum for federal employees to address complaints of discrimination or harassment because of their race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or pregnancy. Federal employees may also file EEO complaints if they have been retaliated against for filing a previous EEO complaint or for complaining to management about unlawful discrimination or harassment.

If you are a federal government employee who believes you have been discriminated against, harassed or retaliated against, you must act quickly. Federal EEO complaints must be initiated within 45 days of the challenged action. The EEO complaint process consists of several stages, including informal counseling, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), formal written complaint, investigation, report of investigation (ROI), election of hearing before administrative judge or final agency decision, scheduling order, discovery, motions, pre-hearing, hearing and appeals.

The experienced Atlanta, Georgia federal employment lawyers at Fidlon Legal can represent and assist you throughout all stages of the EEO complaint process. Many federal EEO complaints can be resolved without the need for a hearing through settlement negotiations or mediation. We always strive to get you the results you need in the most efficient, cost-effective manner.

Please contact the Atlanta federal employee attorneys at Fidlon Legal for an initial case evaluation to discuss your case.
