Practice Area: Employment / Labor
Outcome: Victory at hearing level; client eligible for benefits
Description: My client was accused of violating national security by compromising secure data, and had been terminated on this basis. At a series of three lengthy and complicated unemployment hearings, I successfully showed not only that no data had actually been compromised, but that the employer had failed to follow its own disciplinary practices regarding the alleged failure. I afterward helped the client follow up with the appropriate agency to protect his continued eligibility for a security clearance.
