The Federal Probationary Period: Administering the Process in Your Agency

Price: $28.95


Probationary employees do not have broad appeal rights, but they do have some avenues of appeal and complaint. Get the only resource that delivers the background and practical guidance you need to properly administer probationary periods in your agency -- and ultimately reduce wrongful termination cases.

First, straightforward language deciphers the history of probationary periods, the relevant laws and regulations, and how the MSPB looks at probationary separations. Then, you get specific suggestions to carry out the process, including the keys to determining an employee’s probationary status as well as how to handle problematic situations.

Develop a systematic approach to making proper probationary decisions in your agency by learning:

  • How to set up necessary internal administrative procedures
  • Steps to take when a probationary employee is just not "getting it"
  • Ways to handle conduct and performance problems that crop up early on
  • And more!

Includes a situation-based quiz to test how well you understand probationary status!
