Created in response to the September 11th attacks, the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) now has more than 60,000 total employees. Like all other federal employees, workers at the TSA are held to certain professional standards and are also granted important legal rights and protections.
At HKM Employment Attorneys LLP, our firm is proud to represent the rights and professional interests of TSA workers. TSA workers do so much to keep our skies safe, and we are committed to ensuring TSA staff get fair working conditions. If you are a TSA employee and you believe that unfair action has been taken against you, please contact our firm today for an immediate review of your case.

TSA: Adverse Employment Action
Should any type of adverse employment action be taken against you, you have the right to file an appeal. For most federal workers, this appeal must be filed with the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB). However, TSA workers operate under a slightly different legal framework. As such, most TSA adverse action cases will not go to the MSPB. If you work for the TSA, your appeal will generally go to the agency’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), in accordance with the process rules set forth by the agency. Some common examples of cases that this office will review include:
- Removals; and
- Workforce reductions.
However, whistleblower retaliation claims will be handled by the MSPB and not the TSA’s internal review process. Ultimately, if any type of adverse employment action has been taken against you, you have the right to seek professional assistance for your appeal. You can and should select an employment law attorney to help you prepare and present your case before the TSA’s internal appeals board. Your appeals rights are somewhat limited, so you need to ensure that you get it right the first time. Additionally, if you were discriminated against, harassed or denied a reasonable and necessary accommodation, we can help.
