New VA accountability law raises concerns over employee rights

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Several weeks ago, we posted about how laws shielding federal workers from retaliation undergo seemingly constant tweaks to close apparent loopholes. This is a positive thing insofar as it contributes to protecting rights of government employees around the country when they face adverse job action.

What are key steps of an MSPB appeal?

The personnel rules that apply to federal government workers and workers for federal contractors amount to what many might consider a bureaucracy within a bureaucracy. As we noted in a post back in September, it can be confusing to know what constitutes an adverse job action. And even when you are sure you've suffered an unfair or illegal practice, it can be difficult to know your legal options without consulting an attorney.

Under Trump budget, who knows what the future holds?

Even with Republicans in full control of Congress there's no certainty over what is likely to come out of the budget hopper in the weeks and months ahead. The full budget plan fed into the funnel late last month does not bode well for federal workers. The plan calls for cuts that will leave thousands out of jobs, and that's just in the Washington, D.C., area. What that likely means for many is termination or unanticipated demotion.

When employees are concerned that their working conditions may not be legal, they're often wise to discuss those concerns with a third-party lawyer. Someone who is uninvolved but with knowledge of labor and employment law can be very helpful in determining if the concerns are valid and what steps to take next.

Whistleblower Protection Act tweaked

The key to giving a good presentation we know is to tell your listeners what you will tell them; tell them; and then tell them what you told them. Aristotle is credited with developing that formula two millennia ago, though his phrasing was different. The standard still seems to apply, and some observers might say that it has leaked into other areas, including the passing of laws.
