Any federal employee who is suspended for 15 days or more, or has been removed from a position, has the right to appeal this action to the MSPB. The case is brought to an administrative hearing before an administrative law judge who makes a determination in the matter. Most decisions can be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Mr. Ackerman is admitted to practice in this court and has handled many cases in front of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He is experienced at presenting his clients' cases in the MSPB hearings and the Court of Appeals, structuring his oral arguments to maximize the likelihood for success with the case.
In addition to employment suspensions, other cases heard by the MSPB include:
- Retirement and disability retirement issues, including disputes with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM)
- Terminations, suspensions, and demotions
