The District of Columbia is home to many employees of the federal and D.C. governments, as well as the agencies that employ them. These agencies are bound by the Constitution even when acting as an employer. The ACLU of the District of Columbia fights for the rights of government employees to equal protection of the laws, to speak out about matters of public concern, and to fair disciplinary procedures that comport with the Constitution.
