Reduction in Force (2017)

This guide is one of the most important books that agencies will need for the next several years. “Deconstructing the administrative state” of “draining the swamp” is underway, and hiring freezes will soon be replaced, agency by agency, by reorganizations, eliminations, cutbacks, and mandatory staff reductions in some agencies. RIFs will be the new “furloughs,” with competitive levels and competitive areas, retention registers, bump and retreat rights, severance pay and DSRs, veterans preference, demotion and termination appeals. Absent a solid command of this highly technical area, this is a minefield of mistakes, of reversals on appeal. Whether an employee, HR official, agency counsel, or employee representative this handy, comprehensive guide is a must, an essential to be on your game, to survive. In a concise, clear format, this text is an easy-to-use, at-your-finger-tips guide for mastering the regulations, statutes, case law, for surviving the minefield.
