(2003) Defending Your Case

Defending Your Case is for agency managers and supervisors who will be testifying before the MSPB, EEOC, or at arbitration hearings, as well as, those providing information in other investigative or adjudicatory proceedings such as EEO investigations, FLRA investigations, and OSC inquiries. Providing more depth than the usual tips on how to testify, the book covers:

  • The Tribunals—including the differences between administrative and judicial tribunals, the most common administrative tribunals, and other administrative fact-finding processes
  • Burdens and Standards—including the burdens of proof, standards of proof, and elements of proof for the most common actions: disciplinary and adverse actions, selections, harassment, and other actions usually challenged
  • The Seven Classic Mistakes—including why agencies lose cases they shouldn’t lose
  • The Mechanics and Dynamics of Testimony—including preparation, appearing on the witness stand, holding up under cross-examination, and giving information in investigative phases

Also includes a detailed table of contents.

Also available as a .pdf file on a CD-ROM or as an ebook for instant download.
