Adverse Actions (2017)

Written by Michael Corum, a popular Dewey author on employee management, Adverse Actions simplifies adverse and performance-based actions, offering a thorough yet practical guide to removals, demotions, suspensions, and short furloughs against statutorily protected employees in the federal civil service. With tips and advice for proposing and deciding officials, this instructional text presents the law and procedures but does not complicate discussion with legalese.

The 2017, fifth edition, features up to date guidance on adverse and performance-based actions and expanded chapters on cause and penalty.

Also includes a detailed table of contents.
