Washington Employment Lawyer

Working and managing a workplace are both not easy to perfect, especially in legal terms. You will, sooner or later, need legal assistance from an experienced employment lawyer.

Most often than not, our jobs and businesses become the defining factor of how our life will turn out. And today, it’s so unlike the old times where employees tend to bite their tongues and be submissive while letting employers do what they think is right. The modern workplace is now regulated by various employment laws, making one’s navigation through employment a bit more complex and far less personal than before.

Gone are days where settlements can be achieved through personal discussions. You need to know and protect every right you have as an employee, as well as every law you need to comply with as an employer.

The changes in the workplace, especially the negative ones, will affect not just your financial and societal status, but also your emotional and mental health. Workplace disputes are something you want to avoid as much as you can and resolve as soon as possible if avoidance became futile.

Our Washington, DC employment lawyers will provide the exact assistance you need to prevent the worst from affecting your jobs and businesses. Whether you are an employee, a business owner, a manager, or a business partner, you won’t go wrong with hiring our best employment lawyers.

Just call (202) 902-8399 to contact Law Offices of Kevin Byrnes PLLC and consult our lawyers for all your legal concerns.

Federal Employees

business contract negotiation 300x200 Washington Employment LawyerFederal employees are indeed granted protections unavailable to regular civil employees. Despite this, they still aren’t free from the common workplace concerns all employees are facing.

Wrongful termination, whistleblower reprisal, sexual harassment, as well as discrimination against race, age, ethnicity, and disability also threaten the peace of federal employees’ workplace. Additionally, they may also face the complex process of administrative complaints.

Intricate rules and regulations determine whether or not federal employees can pursue a complaint. The federal court, together with several agencies, oversees the federal law that every employee must adhere to. Yet even if it will be complicated, time-consuming, and difficult, every employee must pursue their claims. Our law firm will help with that.

Our employment lawyers have substantial work experience with federal employees dealing with the following concerns:

  • Adverse action and discipline matters
  • Internal investigations
  • Fitness for duty examinations
  • Security clearance issues
  • Giglio matters
  • Harassments
  • Whistleblower claims
  • Retaliation and reprisal
  • Discrimination (based on either of the following: race, age, sex, ethnicity, familial status, marital status, national origin, and disability)

Maybe you got denied your rightful pay or benefits. Maybe your promotion was unfairly given to someone else. Perhaps you were harassed in your workplace or terminated without a reasonable cause. Or possibly, you are facing some sort of investigation or disciplinary action.

Whatever your case may be, the expert Washington, DC employment lawyers of Law Offices of Kevin Byrnes PLLC will give you the best legal service you can ask for.

  • You have the right to be free from discrimination based on military service.
  • If you leave to serve the military, you have the right to continue employer-based health care coverage for you and your dependents for up to 24 months.
  • You have the right to equal advancement opportunities like those of non-military personnel.
  • You have the right not to be punished in terms of seniority as a result of your military service.
  • You have the right to enforce all these rights and be free from discrimination, retaliation, and reprisal based on your military service.

We have extensive working experience with US military personnel and reservists with claims under USERRA. If you were denied anything or mistreated due to your military service, our employment lawyers in Washington, DC, are here to serve you.
