The federal government requires a large number of its employees and contractors to obtain security clearances in order to perform their job duties. Obtaining the correct security clearance is a complex process which often times requires an extensive investigation into the applicant’s background. A person seeking a security clearance may have their financial history and personal life reviewed in order for the government to obtain a clear picture of their character.
While the investigations that go into granting a security clearance are comprehensive, there is no guarantee that a government worker will possess their clearance indefinitely. The government can suspend or revoke an employee’s security clearance if confidence in the worker’s ethics or personal well-being is compromised in any way. A federal employee or contractor who is late on their household bills or who is charged with a criminal offense, for example, can see their clearance withdrawn immediately.
The Federal Practice Group’s team of experienced attorneys is prepared to assist clients through each phase of the security clearance application or appeal process. The team is capable of handling all matters related to security clearances, including:
