Dealing with an Agency’s Adverse Action
We’ll instruct you how to deal with your Agency. We’ll let you know exactly what to expect from them. We’ll provide specific guidance and direction about the most appropriate time to let them know about your plans to file for Federal Disability Retirement benefits.
Depending on the specific circumstances, we’ll let you know how to deal with others in a hostile work environment and especially with unfriendly supervisors or managers, and what to do in case of further adverse agency actions.
When needed, we’ll also advise you on how to approach your supervisors or Human Resource personnel in case they refuse to fill out their proper forms; if they finally make an adequate job offer just to try to defeat your disability claim; and if they even delay submitting their documentation to the Office of Personnel Management. Remember, however, that this is a “medical” issue, and as such, you don’t need to worry too much about what an immediate supervisor will write in his or her report.
