All the nuances and intricacies of the employee appeals process can be tricky for any federal professional – whether new to employee relations law or experienced. Here’s your straightforward guide to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) and its functions, including the board’s organization and staff, what it handles, and the various appeals processes.

With no confusing language and overwhelming case minutia, you get the “big picture” of the MSPB process – discovery, motions, appeals, statutes and regulations, and more. Quick-read chapters explain just what you need to know, including:

  • What issues fall directly – and indirectly – under the MSPB’s jurisdiction
  • 55 different settlement options
  • Model language that should be included in all settlement statements, per the new whistleblower law
  • All 13 prohibited personnel practices
  • Several points to keep in mind when dealing with mixed cases
  • A start-to-finish walk-through of the MSPB hearing

Plus, you get summaries of significant MSPB and court decisions to illustrate the board’s processes regarding adverse actions, arbitration, attorney’s fees, due process, jurisdiction, mixed cases, nexus, penalties, settlements, whistleblower protections and more.
