Federal Agency Services
Shaw Bransford & Roth (SB&R), has the extensive experience necessary to assist small and medium-sized agencies with employee relations, personnel, EEO and labor relations issues. Our legal staff includes experienced attorneys who have worked in the labor and employee relations areas in agencies within the federal government. As agencies downsize and contract-out, SB&R can assist in the following areas:
Charges, Hearings & Appeals: SB&R can assist with the proper drafting of charges in adverse actions and the development of an evidentiary record to support adverse actions. We are also prepared to handle the hearing and the appeal at the Merit Systems Protection Board.
EEO Cases: SB&R can assist with the handling and defense of EEO complaints to include the drafting of Final Agency Decisions (FADs) or litigating an EEO case before the EEOC or federal courts. We can also provide advice to federal agencies on how to handle and/or litigate complicated or sensitive EEO cases.
Misconduct or other Management Investigations: SB&R can assist with the investigation of employee misconduct. SB&R has assisted with investigations into integrity issues, violations of the agency’s rules of conduct and sexual harassment (Faragher and Ellerth) investigations. We have extensive experience in assisting agencies handling difficult, sensitive and high-profile employee misconduct matters.
Labor Management Negotiations, Arbitrations and Contract Disputes: The day-to-day dealings with labor unions concerning bargaining term or mid-term agreements and contract administration issues are within our specialized practice area. We have handled numerous arbitrations and can readily advise or assist in all aspects of labor relations.
PLEASE NOTE: SB&R will not represent individual employees at agencies with which it has contracts to provide legal services for employees on employment matters.
