New York Department of Homeland Security Attorneys

Nassau County DHS Adverse Actions Appeals Lawyers

As an employee for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), you have the right to a formal review of any adverse employment action taken against you. At the Law Offices of Louis D. Stober, Jr., L.L.C., we handle the review hearings. If necessary, we can file a discrimination claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission if the DHS discriminated against you.

These two routes to seek recourse against the DHS are available to every employee of the federal agency. We vigorously seek a cause of action on your behalf if you were illegally terminated from your position in the DHS. Contact our firm or call us at 877-791-8076 to assist you either in the review process or in filing suit against the department.

Workplace Discrimination Is Illegal

If you believe that the Department of Homeland Security fired, demoted or terminated you because of a discriminatory reason, you need to contact us immediately. The statute of limitations for filing an EEOC claim is significantly limited — from 300 days for non-federal employees to only 45 days for DHS employees. When you come to us, we will quickly pursue both routes to ensure that your employment rights are protected if you were discriminated on the basis of the following:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Age
  • National origin
  • Retaliation
  • Disability

Our employment attorneys have more than 30 years of experience representing clients in the Long Island and Hudson Valley, New York, areas. The firm has had significant success challenging adverse employment against the DHS. We understand the evidence necessary to bring a strong case to the Merit System Protection Board (MSPB) because we have handled these types of cases before. We also know how to file for an EEOC claim within the reduced timeframe and argue before the commission on your behalf.

We Hold the Department of Homeland Security Accountable

In addition to the MSPB review and the EEOC claim, your factual situation may warrant a claim against the DHS for a violation of the Privacy Act. This federal act protects your right to privacy within the workplace. Under the act, we may also be able to make a claim for more damages than are allowed under the discrimination statutes.

Whether you want to dispute your termination in front of the Board or you have a claim for discrimination, contact us now or call 877-791-8076 as soon as possible. We want to help you assert your rights but time is limited to file a claim against the Department of Homeland Security. When you turn to the Law Offices of Louis D. Stober, Jr., L.L.C., we know how to appeal Department of Homeland Security adverse employment actions.
