Federal sector cases are usually in one of three federal agencies/administrative offices: the EEOC’s federal sector process; the U.S. Office of the Special Counsel; and the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board. Our highly-experienced panelists will discuss the delays that federal sector practitioners are experiencing in the administrative process, review the strengths and weaknesses of different enforcement avenues, and help you choose the best potential route for your client.
