How to Defend Against Proposed Disciplinary and/or Adverse Actions

Joanna Friedman, Partner Federal Practice Group

What are your rights when an agency proposed disciplinary action and/or adverse actions.  What information must be included in a proposed action and how to identify and respond to any due process violations.  Learn about an agency’s legal burdens to sustaining the action and how to prepare a sufficient reply to proposed actions, your options on how to appeal and some strategies on how to navigate the MSPB appeal process.

Joanna Friedman is a partner with The Federal Practice Group, focusing on federal sector employment law in all phases of investigation, litigation and appeal.  She practices before administrative bodies such as the EEOC, Office of the Inspector General, Office of Special Counsel, and the MSPB, and the courts from which appeals of those actions are taken.  Her expertise includes discrimination, security clearance, reasonable accommodations, whistle-blower retaliation, prohibited personnel practices, disciplinary and adverse action defense, performance defense, wage/hour issues, disability retirement, and Inspector General Investigations. Joanna presented on EEO and Disciplinary/Adverse Action related matters at the Federal Employed Women’s (FEW) conference and Blacks In Government conference on Title VII, the Equal Pay Act, the ADEA, and the Rehabilitation Act and gave attendees a deeper look into the Agency EEO process.  In 2015, she presented at the Excel Conference the Nuts and Bolts of Sanctions and Default Judgements at the EEOC.  In 2017, she presented again at the Excel Conference on Rules of Evidence Presentation. In 2018, she led a webinar for LRP Media Group Handling FMLA Leave Employee Requests.  Joanna earned an LL.M. from American University’s Washington College of Law in the Law and Government Program with an emphasis on advanced constitutional law, and her J.D. is from St. John’s University School of Law in New York.  She holds a B.A. from the School of Public Affairs, American University.
