Q: Does FEDS provide any Consultation benefits?
The FEDS policy allows for two half hour legal consultations -at no additional cost - with an attorney for pre-complaint matters and other issues related to your employment that are not covered by the liability defense benefits offered under the policy. Here are two scenarios when you might use this special service:
Employee of the Department of Labor is told he will be put on a performance improvement plan (PIP) for unsatisfactory performance. While performance matters are not covered by the additional legal defense portion of the benefit plan, you would be assigned an attorney experienced in the area of federal personnel and performance law to provide you with ½ hour free telephonic legal consultation.
Employee at the Department of Homeland Security who was not selected for a promotion believes he is being discriminated against because of his race and wants to file an EEO complaint but does not know how. While proactive actions such as the filing of and prosecution of an EEO complaint are not covered by the additional legal defense portion of the benefit plan, you would be assigned an attorney experienced in the area of EEO law to provide you with ½ hour free telephonic legal consultation.
