Federal Circuit limits appeals to MSPB for "sensitive" employees

Federal civilian Department of Defense (DoD) employees handling "sensitive" work have lost any right to appeal an adverse job action the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), according to a court of appeals decision last week. The court ruled this applies even when the job does not require a security clearance or classified access.

Right to counsel in MSPB hearings?

The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) is where federal employees file their appeal of any adverse job actions, like disciplinary proceedings or terminations. The MSPB has been in the news recently as they have been receiving many appeals caused by agency furloughs.

Additional delays for DoD MSPB furlough appeals

The unprecedented number of appeals by federal employees involving the furloughs resulting from the sequester has forced the MSPB to delay processing of those appeals. The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), which had already received more furlough related appeals by the end of July than they typically receive in a year, issued a statement on their website that they would be delaying processing of Department of Defense (DoD), "until we have a better understanding of the claims being raised."
