Presented by Marilyn Mattingly

The Merit Systems Protection Board has long held that your agency does not have to tolerate unauthorized absences or even authorized extended absences if they impact the efficiency of the service. But you do have to handle these situations just the right way so your actions aren't overturned.

Join renowned HR and employee leave expert Marilyn Mattingly for 90 minutes of expert insight on how to properly charge discipline for the various situations involving leave abuse as well as the interplay with reasonable accommodation requirements. You'll learn:

  • Criteria for using the excessive absence charge and cases in which it has been successful
  • Various reasons for removing an employee for "medical inability to perform" and the consequences of losing a case
  • The basis for removing an employee for inability to maintain a regular work schedule or for irregular attendance
  • Actions which can be taken for sporadic or excessive absenteeism due to medical reasons
  • How to deal with reasonable accommodation issues in relation to the different charges and defend against allegations of disability discrimination
  • When disciplinary action can be taken for AWOL

And because her practical guidance is linked to specific cases, you have support for your actions and can explain why they are correct -- leading to fewer reversals by the MSPB.
