Deborah Hopkins

Course Description

A majority of federal employees say their managers fail to take the necessary steps to address poor-performing coworkers – in fact, the 2019 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey reported that only 34% of employees are happy with how their supervisors handle poor performers. And there is a general sense throughout government that in most agencies, misconduct is not being handled effectively. The problem often isn’t that supervisors are not addressing performance and conduct problems – it’s that they’re doing it incorrectly.

A poorly chosen word, too many unnecessary words, the wrong charge, too much discussion of evidence – these common occurrences will derail your efforts. FELTG President and Attorney at Law Deborah Hopkins will identify the pitfalls and offer direct guidance on drafting legally-sufficient discipline and performance documents.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Properly assess and draft mitigating and aggravating factors.
  • Identify the pros and cons of the different styles of charges.
  • Draft an effective Performance Demonstration Period initiation memo.

This webinar is part of the Fall 2020 Webinar Series.
