Federal Security Clearance
It is extremely common for both government workers and government contractors to hold Federal security clearances, and in many instances, the clearance is necessary for them to be employed in a certain position and perform certain duties. If you’re a security clearance holder, you’re well aware that being cleared, with the right level of clearance, is imperative for remaining employed and working on a daily basis in the Federal sector.
This should all be straightforward, however, sometimes an employee is notified that their security clearance is being revoked or denied.
For situations like this, you need to act fast in order to protect your rights. The time frame to respond to official government notices can be as short as a few days.
