FedLaw is thrilled to provide a $1,500 Aaron D. Wersing Federal Employment Rights Scholarship to students, giving them a chance to pursue their academic goals .

About the Organization

The Federal Employment Law Firm of Aaron D. Wersing is specifically focused on federal employee law. Just like other employees, federal employees can face an array of challenges including disability claims, discrimination and harassment, whistleblower claims, retaliation, wrongful termination, and other adverse employment actions.

However, many of their rights are governed by specific laws that are unique to federal employees, and few law firms understand the complexities of their rights. Our team is dedicated to helping federal employees nationwide understand and protect their rights.
