State Department Disability Class Action - Announcement

Check out Bryan Schwartz Law's new website:


If you are a current or former employee of or applicant to the United States Department of State Foreign Service with a disability, a record of a past disability, or a condition perceived by the State Department as a disability:
Were you denied Class 1 medical clearance?

Have you been denied desirable or prestigious State Department posts because of your medical condition?

Have you been denied reasonable accommodations for your disability?

Have you been harmed by the so-called "worldwide availability" requirement?
If your answer to any of these questions is "Yes" you may have a discrimination claim to bring immediately against the State Department.

If the State Department’s Office of Medical Services (MED) denied your Class 1 clearance, affecting your employment with another Government agency, you may also have a claim.

Bryan Schwartz Law has certified a nationwide class of applicants to the Foreign Service who were denied Class 1 medical clearance based on their supposed lack of "worldwide availability," which is currently being reviewed by the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

You must file an EEO claim with the State Department within 45 days of any unfavorable action you believe is related to your disability, record of a disability, or perceived disability, by contacting the State Department’s Office of Civil Rights: or by email:
