The Biden administration is going to move forward with a new MSPB and new rules related to civil service. In the meantime, as an agency or union ER practitioner you have to continue with adverse actions — but with no clear path ahead. Rely on Robert Erbe, noted expert on MSPB practice and procedure, to guide your way.

Blending his extensive experience in adverse actions from both the agency and employee sides, Erbe will help you develop the skills needed to proceed under the new administration and provide strategies for taking and defending actions. You'll also learn the potential impact of a pro-employee MSPB and how the revocation of Trump-era Executive Orders has altered the adverse action process.

Be ready to successfully tackle adverse actions in this new environment with expert guidance and a thorough education on:

  • Circumstances under which an agency can be more aggressive in taking an adverse action
  • The importance of selecting a reasonable penalty under a pro-employee administration
  • Using alternative discipline as a strategic forum choice
  • The value (and legality) of clean record agreements under OPM regulations
  • How Douglas factors might be impacted by new administration guidance
  • The renewed importance of progressive discipline concepts
  • And more

Now that agencies have been dealing with the new paid parental leave rules for several months, FMLA expert Robin Wink has seen the challenges that federal HR practitioners and specialists are confronting. Don't miss this opportunity to get her authoritative guidance on how to handle the novel situations arising from this new leave entitlement.

Rather than an overview of the law, this webinar will be problem-focused, with Robin breaking down specific trouble spots one scenario at a time. You'll gain an understanding of how PPL and other paid leave fit into FMLA, how the timing of FMLA usage affects the available amount of leave, and how to apply eligibility rules and notice requirements to your employees' situations.

Plus, you'll be equipped with the knowledge and strategies to:

  • Answer questions on requesting PPL and providing documentation
  • Recognize the factors that affect an employee's entitlement to PPL
  • Determine the amount of FMLA leave an employee is entitled to during a particular period
  • Identify when requested intermittent leave must be granted and when you have discretion
  • Establish what medical and supporting documentation you may request and how to evaluate it
  • Advise employees of their post-PPL obligations and respond when employees fail to satisfy them
  • And more

As your agency prepares for employees to return to the workplace, you have practical and compliance questions that need to be addressed: What do we do about employees who want to continue teleworking but are needed in the workplace? How do we handle employee requests to be exempt from mask mandates as a disability accommodation? What if employees perceive that co-workers aren't following COVID-related protocols?

This webinar will provide the EEO and ER answers you need to reopen the workplace while meeting legal requirements. Attorney Debra D'Agostino will give you solutions to the wide-ranging issues you'll face — vaccinations, mask requirements, pandemic-related leave and more. Along with relevant EEOC guidance on employers mandating vaccination and other issues, you'll learn strategies to:

  • Recognize a request for reasonable accommodation related to an agency vaccine and/or mask mandate
  • Encourage managers to enforce COVID-related best practices even when faced with employee pushback
  • Determine an employee's leave options for continued pandemic-related issues, including childcare
  • Identify when an employee can be disciplined for refusing to wear a mask
  • Accommodate employees who are wary about returning to the workplace because of their own or a family member's health conditions
  • And more unfamiliar issues!
