Federal Employment Law Attorneys in Indianapolis
Supporting Government Workers’ Claims
Federal employees enjoy many of the same legal protections afforded to their private sector counterparts, and may actually be even more broadly protected by the law under certain circumstances. This can be attributed to the fact that a federal employee is someone tasked with carrying out official government business or rendering services that the general public relies upon. Although union activity and speech could be curtailed to an extent for some federal employees, they may be among the most protected Americans in the workforce.

Due Process Means You Are Not Employed At-Will
There are less than a dozen states that don’t permit at-will employment. This means that for private sector employees, their employers can legally terminate their employment contracts for nearly any reason – or none at all – as long as there’s nothing illegal about their reasoning (such as discrimination, whistleblowing, retaliation, etc.).
As a government employee, you are not subject to at-will employment no matter which state you live in. In fact, you are entitled to due process before your employment with the federal government can be terminated. That means that you will be given advanced notice that your termination is imminent and a hearing where the government must demonstrate, with evidence, that it had a good reason for firing you.
