Written by subject matter experts, Renn Fowler and Samuel Vitaro, MSPB Charges and Penalties: A Charging Manual is the premier research tool on adverse actions, charge drafting, classification and interpretation, and penalties. Using Board and Federal Circuit cases as examples, in Part I, the authors break down the charge, discussing how the language or punctuation used can determine a charge’s success or failure and how to improve the charge based on the alleged conduct. Part II on penalties instructs readers how to select a sustainable penalty. Part III breaks down more than 75 specific charges, such as AWOL and falsification, and their corresponding proof requirements and defenses. The guide now includes two chapters on “How to do it.” The first one explains how to master the basics and apply the fundamentals, while the second one takes you to the step of mastering the techniques and applying the nuances.
