Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)

Melville Johnson, P. C. is committed to helping employees fight for workplace equality. As a federal employee, you are legally protected from discrimination based upon your membership in a protected class of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or age, to name a few. A person who files an EEO complaint or participates in an investigation of an EEO complaint, or who opposes an employment practice made illegal under any of the statutes enforced by EEOC, is also protected from retaliation. Federal employees are also protected against the denial of a reasonable workplace accommodation based upon religious beliefs or a disability. Unfortunately, this discrimination does still occur—and frequently.

At Melville Johnson, we are advocates for you as a federal employee and are here to assist you in protecting your rights and remedying the effects of discrimination in the workplace. Our EEO attorneys represent victims of discrimination nationwide, working tirelessly to achieve positive results on behalf of our clients.

Or if you already have a pending EEO claim, it’s not too late to obtain representation to ensure a positive outcome. Get in touch today to discuss your ongoing claim and learn how we assist you.

Disability Retirement Attorneys

Applying for disability benefits can be overwhelming. The paperwork is endless and, sometimes, your disability benefit claim may be denied because of a technicality. Meanwhile, your medical condition may only be getting worse. Do not let the disability system discourage you. We have experienced retirement disability lawyers who can help guide you through the process. Whether you suffer from a work-related injury, a debilitating illness or other long-term health problems, you deserve help. When we take a case, we offer effective legal counsel and the determination to pursue every possible avenue until your disability benefits claim is resolved—whether at OPM or the MSPB.

The Claims Process

Unfortunately, it is very common for claimants to go through the entire lengthy process, only to have their claim has been denied after having exhausted their options. In this process, it is crucial for you to be proactive from the beginning. We will help ensure that you receive all of the benefits the government provides for you. We obtain full medical records, work intimately with your doctors and evaluate your claim in light of the applicable laws. Regardless of the circumstances, we’ll focus on settling the claim prior to litigation at the MSPB. Legally, you must go through the entire administrative appeals process before an administrative law judge can hear your case. You need a lawyer at the earliest possible stage.
