Attorney Kirk Angel has extensive experience representing employees of the federal government including representing those employees before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB). Mr. Angel is himself a former federal employee and understands the unique experiences of federal employees. He routinely represents postal employees (USPS) as well as the employees of other federal agencies.
If you are a postal service employee or other federal government employee and you have been subjected to retaliation, harassment, or discrimination or you have been terminated from your job, you should reach out to The Angel Law Firm as quickly as possible. If you do not, your rights could be seriously jeopardized due to the very short filing time frames that are applicable to federal employee claims. For example, if you are a federal employee who wants to file a discrimination case must do so within 45 days of the unlawful act. Additionally, if you have been terminated from your employment as a federal employee, you must file a claim with the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) in most cases within 30 days of learning of the termination.
Attorney Angel can represent you in proceedings before both the EEOC and the MSPB. However, not every federal employee needs representation in legal proceedings. Many federal employees need advice and guidance. Mr. Angel routinely consults with employees who have not been terminated or have not filed a claim with the EEOC or MSPB. Those employees simply want advice, guidance, and counseling on how to approach their employment issue with their federal agency. If you need such guidance, Mr. Angel can help.
We recommend that you seek out an attorney as soon as you are aware that you may need one. For example, if you are in the process of filing an EEO internally, it is a good idea to reach out to an experienced federal employee attorney at that point. If you are a federal employee, including a USPS employee, and you are facing a serious situation at work or just need to speak to an attorney about your rights, call The Angel Law Firm at 704.706.9292.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
If you believe you are a victim of unlawful discrimination, retaliation or harassment, you must file with the EEOC. However, before you do we recommend that contact our office. Our senior attorney worked as an EEOC Trial Attorney before opening our Firm. We can represent you at every stage of the EEOC process including filing the charge for you.
Remember: the EEOC is not on your side, but we are.
Our employment litigation practice includes the representation of employees in cases involving all aspects of employment law, including claims arising under federal, state or local employment discrimination laws. Additionally, we have successfully represented clients before a broad array of administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, state and federal occupational safety and health agencies, the U.S. Department of Labor, the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearings, and local human relations commissions. Please visit our “Practice Areas” page for a description of the claims you may be able to bring against your employer.
