Adverse Actions (2017)

With tips and advice for proposing and deciding officials, this instructional text presents the law and procedures but does not complicate discussion with legalese.

The 2017, fifth edition, features up to date guidance on adverse and performance-based actions and expanded chapters on cause and penalty.

Also includes a detailed table of contents.
