Fearing Retaliation

Most often in federal agencies, people complain of retaliation as a form of work place discrimination. Retaliation refers to the practice of firing someone who has made a complaint about working conditions. As an employee, you have the right to make a complaint related to the environment you work in without fear of termination. If you feel you have been terminated because of complaints you made to management, you have every right to pursue a discrimination case against your former employer.

Know Your Options

After retaliation, most people claimed age and race were factors in being discriminated against in the work place and that people were treated unfairly or unjustly terminated because of age or race. Additionally, the time it takes for cases to go through the process once filed is unusually high, meaning federal agencies are often dealing with a backlog of discrimination cases.

The federal government is the very body that puts anti-discrimination policies into place and should thus be enforcing them and carrying them out accordingly in all their agencies, ensuring that people are not discriminated against in any way, shape, or form. If you feel your rights have been violated, you can work with the attorneys at Shegerian & Associates to get the settlement you deserve.
