This CD-ROM module will assist the practitioner who represents an employee in an appeal or a grievance of a disciplinary action. This course walks the practitioner though the basic elements of any disciplinary action and explains the agency’s burden of proof. It “turns the tables” on the process and specifically addresses nearly 100 different tactics the representative can use to defend his client. Developed by an attorney with over 25 years of experience, this course puts the tools and strategies for an effective defense into the representative’s hands using video clips, web links, email question capability, and text presentations to cover: the basic elements of disciplinary actions; means of disproving the agency’s disciplinary case; proving that due process was denied; establishing whistleblower reprisal; demonstrating civil rights, union status, or veteran’s status discrimination; rebuttal of an unacceptable performance action; challenging a RIF separation or demotion; responding to separation for medical inability to perform; confronting a probationary removal; defending against removal for loss of security clearance; and techniques of researching federal employment law.
