Sequestration, furloughs, and federal employee rights.

March 4, 2013 — This week on For Your Benefit, our host, Bob Leins, welcomes attorney Bill Bransford to the show.

Bransford is a partner at Shaw, Bransford & Roth and general counsel for the Senior Executives Association.

His practice is concentrated on the representation of federal executives, managers, and employees before U.S. District Courts, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Office of Special Counsel, Offices of Inspector General and with offices that adjudicate security clearances.

Together Leins and Bransford examine the effects of sequestration on the federal employee, federal employee rights in a furlough situation and the limited possibilities for an appeal.
