Government Agency Actions

Legal Representation

Murray Law provides experienced representation to clients in a wide range of investigatory and decision-making proceedings before federal, state, and local government agencies.

Legal representation is provided to individuals and entities in the private sector, and to persons working in every level of command in federal, state, and local government—including individuals, employees, employers, applicants, former employees, managers, supervisors, executives, individual professionals, professional practices, and associations.

Employment Investigations & EEO Charges & Defense of Adverse Actions

Individuals and employers may be involved in employment related investigations before a government agency. Examples include investigations of charges of employment discrimination filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or a state fair employment practice agency, such as the Colorado Civil Rights Division. This office provides representation to individuals, companies, and associations facing an employment-related investigation by a government agency.

Murray Law represents federal, state, and local government employees in all stages of confronting adverse actions by the government agency employer in issue. Legal representation is provided before agencies administering equal employment opportunity charges, i.e. the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the Colorado Civil Rights Division, and/or agencies deciding adverse personnel issues, i.e. the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, the Colorado State Personnel Board, or the City and County of Denver Career Service Authority.

A government employee may confront an adverse agency proceeding when his or her agency employer proposes an adverse action against the employee. The adverse action may be based on misconduct or poor performance. The employee may have the right to respond to the proposed adverse action. The specific process available to contest the adverse action will vary depending on the severity of the alleged conduct in issue and the severity of the proposed penalty.

Government employees have the right to confront severe disciplinary and performance- based actions. For example, the majority of federal government employees have the right to present an oral and written replies in response to specific, proposed adverse actions, i.e. a proposed discharge based on misconduct. In the case of a discharge, the federal employee submits the written and oral replies to the official designated as the decision-maker for the initial decision. The federal employee may retain an attorney to develop and submit the oral and written replies to the proposed action. If the agency sustains the discharge, the employee may appeal the action to the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board. Thereafter, the federal employee may contest the discharge in several stages of the MSPB process.

Professional Licensure Representation

Murray Law represents individuals facing proposed adverse actions concerning a person’s license to work in a certain occupation or practice a profession. Individuals holding a specific occupational or professional license, may confront investigatory action and/or disciplinary action by the governmental authority regulating the occupation or profession.
