In August 2018, client receives a notice of proposed removal for allegations of serious misconduct including false statements. Client is a federal Special Agent with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. A written response is prepared on behalf of client to the agency and an oral reply is conducted with the deciding official.
In October 2019, the agency sustains the proposed removal and client is removed from federal service. An appeal was filed with the MSPB on the client’s behalf.
Upon resuming representation after the government shutdown and during the litigation portion of the discovery phase of the appeal, the agency completely rescinds the removal action. Client receives all back pay and benefits. Client is restored to full duty in his law enforcement position.
