Dewey Publications has turned to help an often-neglected group: federal managers and supervisors who are completely new to federal civil service. This book, written by America’s leading author on supervision in the federal civil service, is specifically written for political appointees, military officers and NCO’s, scientists, and other academics from private industry now in charge of federal activities and thrust into managing federal employees.

This book will give that audience a clear overview of the structure and dynamics of federal civil service not clearly visible in laws, regulations, and agency policy manuals. It teaches the rights and responsibilities of the federal manager and shows them how to exert their authority at the real pressure points in the system.

It starts with an overview of the system and then carries them through the basic five phases of managing federal employees: job structuring, hiring, managing performance, maintaining discipline, and managing leave and attendance. Then it shows the basics of the related issues of equal employment opportunity and labor relations.

Among the topics covered are:
