Written by top practitioners, Adverse Actions and Performance-Based Actions is a through examination of the governing law, case law, and processes that agencies are obligated to follow in taking adverse and performance-based actions. With strategy hints, practice tips, key checklists, and model forms, the authors offer step-by-step advice on how to take effective adverse actions and performance-based actions. Each section is divided by individual actions and examines all substantive and procedural issues: what is covered, who is covered, what are the issues, and what must happen to prevail.

Advocates and agency HR professionals rely on Adverse Action and Performance-Based Actions for instruction on:

  • The Civil Service Reform Act: Where Did It Come From and What Does It Do—including legislative history and the basics of the Merit Systems Protection Board, Federal Labor Relations Authority, grievance-arbitration, Office of Personnel Management, Office of Special Counsel, and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
  • Adverse Actions: The Statutory and Regulatory Requirements—including covered actions and employees, proof requirements, and affirmative defenses
  • Adverse Actions: The Agency’s Administrative Process—including the investigation, charges, proposal, reply, and decision
  • Performance-Based Actions—including substantive employee rights and what the agency must prove, affirmative defenses and discussion of whether to use Chapter 43 or 75 in implementing performance-based actions
  • Performance-Based Actions: The Agency’s Administrative Process—including the appraisal system, critical elements, communicating standards and elements, performance improvement periods, proposal, reply, and decision

Also included are a detailed table of contents and appendices with two sample opportunity notices, sample proposal notice and sample decision notice.
