The Employment and Labor Law Division represents the FAA in administrative and court litigation potentially having a significant impact on any law, regulation, or FAA policy relating to the employment of FAA personnel, and in all cases originating at FAA's National Headquarters.

Employment and Labor Law attorneys represent the FAA before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), in matters before the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), and in selected Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) proceedings and negotiated grievance procedure arbitrations.

Employment and Labor Law attorneys serve as agency counsel, in coordination with the Department of Justice, in federal court litigation at both the district and appellate court levels. Employment and Labor Law attorneys also represent the FAA in alternative dispute resolution efforts related to challenged employment actions.
