(2005) MSPB Basics: The Agency Edition

Written by Peter Broida, author of the ever-popular A Guide to Merit Systems Protection Board Law and Practice, MSPB Basics: The Agency Edition is a concise explanation of the MSPB appellate process for use by agency representatives. With relatively minimal citation to case law and only necessary citation to statutes and regulations, Mr. Broida explains how the agency representative goes about responding to and defending an MSPB appeal. Covered subject matter includes:

  • An Overview of Board Structure and Operations
  • Responding to the Appeal—the necessary contents
  • Discovery—discussion of traditional discovery tools and motions to compel
  • Motions Practice—motions for extensions of time, to waive untimely filing, to dismiss appeal as timely, to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction, and protective and exclusionary motions
  • Settlement—challenges with settlement
  • Discrimination Issues
  • Prehearing Procedures—hearing requests and prehearing orders and conferences
  • Hearings—preparation and organization, opening and closing statements, and direct and cross examination
  • Petition for Review—when, how, and what to file and opposition to PFRs
  • Counsel Fee Petitions
  • Relationships With the Judge, Opposing Counsel, Pro Se Appellants, and Management
  • Research—where to look for relevant information
  • Significant Decisions of the Board—jurisdiction, timeliness, procedures, hearings, penalties, substantive offenses, and affirmative defenses

Also included are a detailed table of contents, sample acknowledgment order, sample hearing notice, and 5 CFR Part 1201 reproduced.

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