Adverse Actions (2017)

Written by Michael Corum, a popular Dewey author on employee management, Adverse Actions simplifies adverse and performance-based actions, offering a thorough yet practical guide to removals, demotions, suspensions, and short furloughs against statutorily protected employees in the federal civil service. 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. Included is extensive explanation of both covered and excluded actions, potential for encountering jurisdictional issues, and how to navigate them. The causes of adverse action and paths best suited for determining penalty and establishing a supporting case are addressed at length for use by various level supervisors.

Also included is a detailed table of contents. Available as a softcover book and/or a PDF file with many useful features delivered on a CD-ROM, USB Flash Drive, or download. Hyperlinks allow the reader to move quickly between the Table of Contents and the corresponding portions of the text. Internal hyperlinks serve as a cross-reference feature within the text.
