Blowing the whistle : barriers to federal employees making disclosures : a report to the President and the Congress of the United States by United States( )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report compares data from Merit Principles Surveys conducted in 1992 and 2010 to describe the extent to which perceptions of retaliation against Federal employees who report wrongdoing remains a serious problem. The results indicate that if an agency creates a culture where its employees believe that management wants to be told about wrongdoing and will address issues raised by employees, then employees are more likely to notify management when they see a problem. The report also explains why agencies should do more to ensure that employees receive quality training about how they can disclose wrongdoing and how they can exercise their rights if they perceive that they have experienced retaliation for whistleblowing activities

Navigating the probationary period after van Wersch and McCormick : a report to the President and the Congress of the United State by United States( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The probationary or trial period in the Federal civilian service is the final stage of the assessment process under which an agency may observe the knowledge, abilities and skills of a candidate for employment and make a final selection decision in light of those observations. If used correctly, this 'job tryout' can be one of the most reliable and valid assessment tools available to Federal agencies when an individual is either employed in his or her first position or moves to a new and different type of position. Proper use of this tool helps promote the merit system principle that selection should be determined solely on the basis of relative ability, knowledge, and skills. An integral part of the probationary or trial period has been the ability of agencies to swiftly terminate those probationers who have not demonstrated their fitness for continued employment. Such terminations typically have not given rise to the same level of uncertainty and additional administrative costs that accompany the removals of employees who are entitled to full procedural and appeal rights. Thus, much like applicants for employment who are not selected for a position, terminated probationers have not, until recently, been considered to be entitled to certain procedural rights before a termination is effected, as well as the right to challenge the merits of their termination before the United States Merit Systems Protection Board and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit). The Federal Circuit is the Board's reviewing court for 'non-mixed' cases, i.e., those cases in which there is no allegation of discrimination raised in connection with an appealable adverse action. This report addresses two decisions issued by the Federal Circuit that have changed the way in which the Board has interpreted a key law that governs entitlement to procedural and appeal rights if an individual in the Federal civilian service is subjected to an adverse action such as a removal. These cases, Van Wersch v. Department of Health & Human Services and McCormick v. Department of the Air Force, provide that some individuals who have traditionally been thought of as probationers with limited rights may actually be entitled to the same rights afforded to employees with finalized appointments. Van Wersch and McCormick, therefore, provide rights to additional categories of persons not previously considered to have had those rights. Given this change in the interpretation of the law, it is important that all stakeholders understand the Federal Circuit's decisions and some of the issues that may arise in light of those decisions. Agencies must now proceed with caution when terminating probationary employees because the cost of violating a probationer's pre-termination procedural rights can be high. Agencies may be ordered, on appeal of the action to the Board or the Federal Circuit, to treat a probationer as an employee with a finalized appointment and return the individual to his or her position with back pay and benefits."--Page i-ii

Prohibited personnel practices : a study retrospective : a report to the President and the Congress of the United States by United States( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In accordance with the requirements of 5 U.S.C. 1204(a)(3), it is my honor to submit this Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) report, Prohibited Personnel Practices--A Study Retrospective. Since MSPB is launching a reexamination of the prevalence of prohibited personnel practices within the Federal Government, this report is intended to provide our stakeholders with a foundation of past MSPB research that examined these issues. MSPB has conducted extensive research to examine the occurrence of prohibited personnel practices in the Federal Government, as well as adherence to their complement, the merit system principles. In selected previous reports that are summarized here we have noted that the percentage of employees reporting discrimination based on ethnicity/race, sex, age, and religion have declined over time, while an increasing percentage of Federal employees believe that they are being treated fairly. However, we have also acknowledged that the Federal Government still has work to do to ensure a workplace free of prohibited personnel practices. For example, although a decreasing percentage of employees believe that they have experienced prohibited discrimination, many employees believe that personnel decisions are often based on factors other than merit, such as favoritism. There is also a continuing gap between minority and nonminority employees' perceptions of the prevalence of discrimination and other prohibited personnel practices

Attracting the next generation : a look at federal entry-level new hires : a report to the President and the Congress of the United States by United States( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Federal Government hires a significant number of entry-level new hires in professional and administrative occupations every year. Because of the large number of impending retirements and the concurrent necessity to build career pipelines for these positions, the Federal Government is likely to increase its entry-level hiring at least through fiscal year 2010. Critics argue that the Government may not be up to this task. They say the Government has become less attractive to younger workers and that the length and complexity of the hiring process hampers applicant interest in Federal jobs. The overall results of this study show that while some of the criticisms hold true, the Government is actually better at attracting new hires than some might think."--Page i
