Written by Michael Corum, a leading lecturer and author of books for federal supervisors and personnel specialists, Supervisor’s Guide to Litigation and Dispute Resolution guides federal supervisors and managers through the administrative and judicial tribunals and procedures used by employees and employee unions to contest agency actions. It distinguishes supervisory actions that can be challenged and those that cannot. The text also provides guidance for avoiding litigation or minimizing its impact in the workplace.

Federal supervisors and managers rely on Supervisor’s Guide for guidance on topics including:

  • Basics of Appeals and Grievances—including the distinction between an appeal and grievance, burdens and standards of proof, an employee’s right to representation, and supervisory immunity and liability
  • Internal Avenues to Challenge Supervisory Actions—including administrative grievances, alternative dispute resolution, and EEO complaints
  • External Avenues to Challenge Supervisory Actions—including the Merit Systems Protection Board, negotiated grievances, the Federal Labor Relations Authority, Office of Special Counsel, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Department of Labor, Office of Personnel Management, and the federal courts
  • Review of Supervisory Actions That Employees Can Challenge and Those They Cannot—including adverse and performance based actions, probationary removals, reassignments, assignment of duties, and work schedules
  • Steps to take when a supervisor or manager first receives notice of a challenge or lawsuit

Also included are a detailed table of contents, administrative grievance regulations and a listing of supervisory actions over which the MSPB has jurisdiction.

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