Discrimination/EEO Claims – Labor Grievances – Wage and Overtime Claims – Unfair Labor Practices – FMLA claim and other leave issues – Disability Requests and Appeals – Worker’s Compensation
Many regulations govern federal agencies and their employees. Resolving a discrimination claim, wage or unpaid overtime claim, or other issue with a federal agency employer is complicated. The process is very different from the private sector. It requires hearings with other agencies and boards and specific forms that must be completed with exacting detail. Requests and appeals involving disability or Worker’s Compensation are equally complicated.
The Luchansky Millman team represents federal employees with any claims that need to be litigated against a federal agency employer, including the following:
Our team can assist in analyzing your case, advising on the best course of action, ensuring proper and effective completion of paperwork, effective representation in front of administrative boards and courts of law, along with any other work required to achieve the desired results for your case.
Luchansky Millman can provide representation for any cases before the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) or EEOC and in federal labor arbitrations.

Disability Discrimination (Reasonable Accommodation)
Federal agencies are required to provide reasonable accommodation for employees with disabilities that affect their ability to perform the essential functions of their job. If you are injured or disabled and your employer has not provided accommodations to enable you to perform your job sufficiently, or if your employer has terminated you or taken other adverse action against you because of your disability, you may have a disability discrimination claim against your employer. Luchansky Millman can provide assistance in requesting disability accommodations or litigating a disability discrimination case against your federal employer.
