How Can An FAA Lawyer Help Me?
Air traffic controllers have special rights. However, you must act quickly to preserve those rights. For instance, you must contact an EEO counselor within 45 calendar days if you’ve suffered any of the following discrimination:
- race or color discrimination
- religious discrimination
- gender discrimination
- age discrimination
- disability discrimination
- reprisal for engaging in prior EEO activities
You should call an Atlanta FAA lawyer before contacting an EEO counselor. During that call, your lawyer will evaluate your potential claims. If you decide to move forward, your lawyer will file your EEO complaint. That complaint must highlight your strongest claims. That way, your claims will have a better chance to defeat a potential dismissal motion.
An EEO counselor will inspect your complaint. Next, the EEO counselor will prepare a Report of Investigation (ROI). Then, once the ROI is complete, you can request a hearing with an EEO judge. Finally, your lawyer will present evidence at the hearing to prove your claims. If the administrative judge rules in your favor, you can recover compensation for the harms you’ve suffered.
Our Atlanta FAA lawyers have helped many air traffic controllers. We look forward to assisting you.
