Since returning to a quorum in March 2022, the MSPB has issued approximately 50 precedential decisions — and 900+ non-precedential decisions. Although non-precedentials are not controlling case law, they contain a wealth of valuable teaching points on what to do and not do when handling adverse actions. Respected ER expert Robert Erbe will save you from days of arduous research by scouring all these decisions for you and pulling out the key lessons regarding due process, attorney’s fees, penalty determinations and other issues.

Having represented agencies and employees, Erbe will look at both sides of the adversarial proceeding, pointing out the pros and cons of each argument as well as mistakes to avoid and best practices to use when advocating for or against the agency.

You’ll leave with important takeaways and expert guidance on:

  • How the new MSPB is applying the existing body of MSPB case law to new agency actions
  • When a deciding official should consider a medical condition to be a significant mitigating factor in determining penalties
  • How to navigate when technical difficulties can lead to untimely MSPB filings
  • Strategies to ensure the proposing and deciding officials properly consider all Douglas factors
  • Avoiding common pitfalls when drafting charges and penalties
  • And more
