What rights does a federal employee have after being forced to take leave?

Many federal government employees have appeal rights to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) when certain types of disciplinary action are taken against them. Even where there is no formal disciplinary action, an employee may still have a right to challenge the Agency’s action. For example, a federal employees forced to use leave for more than 14-days or forced from the workplace, without due process, may have an appealable action to the MSPB.
