Retaliation for Engaging in Protected Activity Disciplinary Actions Under the existing laws, the FEC retains the right, where appropriate, to discipline a Federal employee for conduct that is inconsistent with Federal antidiscrimination and whistleblower protection laws up to and including removal.
