The Solomon Law Firm, PLLC handles cases appearing before the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) throughout the country.

The Merit Systems Protection Board is a federal agency which is responsible for safeguarding the Merit System Principles which are nine basic standards which govern the management of the federal workforce. These nine principles are part of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978. The MSPB has the power to hear and make decisions in the cases of employees who submit appeals to the Board concerning disciplinary actions or other employment law matters.

Examples of such cases are:

  • Cases concerning federal employee demotions, suspensions, furloughs, and removals
  • Cases concerning an individual's rights or benefits under the CSRS or FERS
  • Cases concerning complaints under the Whistleblower Protection Act
  • Cases involving complaints under the USERRA
  • Cases involving complaints under the and the Veteran's Employment Opportunities Act
  • Cases based on complaints of Prohibited Personnel Practices

You can appeal to the MSPB if you are a competitive service employee who has completed your 1-year probationary period, or if you have completed 2 years of continuous service in the same or a similar position in the federal government, or if you are a veteran's preference eligible employee.

Because of the often times complex nature of litigation before the MSPB, it is important that you have an experienced DC federal employment lawyer in your corner as early in the process as possible to help strategize the best legal approach to winning your case.
