The Federal Sector Equal Employment Opportunity Practice Guide provides detailed practical guidance in federal sector processing of equal employment opportunity cases, including treatment of the procedural issues that arise in complaints and the legal standards that apply to specific discrimination claims. It provides coverage of an area of law that does not have a lot of analysis, particularly practical guidance for both complainants (i.e., federal sector employees) and employers (various federal agencies).
The Practice Guide is geared towards employment attorneys, including those who specialize in representing federal government employees/applicants, as well as those who practice employment discrimination generally and may, from time to time, have a federal sector case. Because issues for federal government employees often arise under different statutes, the guide is also useful for: (1) attorneys who represent clients before the Merit Systems Protection Board or in Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs claims; (2) Human Resources personnel and labor or employee relations specialists at federal government agencies, as they often initially receive reports of discrimination and are charged with advising management on these issues; (3) Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) offices in federal government agencies, who are charged with processing the EEO complaints of federal government employees; and (4) unions for federal government employees, who often advise members on the EEO complaint process.
The guide includes numerous types of practical guidance, such as “Practice Tips,” “Considerations,” “Warnings,” “Examples,” and sample forms. It includes differences between federal and private sector discrimination complaints, mainly information on how federal sector EEO complaint processing differs from private sector and, when applicable, where the law applied to federal sector cases diverges from private sector cases. The benefit of this is that understanding differences between state and federal complaints can be important for federal practitioners in helping them to craft arguments. Extensive strategic advice for complainants in litigating EEO complaints, including developing evidence in support of their claims, is also included, as is strategic advice for agencies in litigating these complaints.
