Experienced Advocacy for State and Federal Government Workers

A constitutional remedy for violation of employee rights is granted to state and federal government workers under 42 U.S.C. 1983, which states:

"Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia."

Most often, a violation of your right to equal protection of the law (in cases of discrimination), or your right to due process (in cases of wrongful termination) is at issue. However, numerous state and federal statutes have been used to vindicate the rights of an employee wronged by a government employer. These laws have even been interpreted to cover employees of government contractors, if state involvement with their employment is great enough.
