Are you aware that Employee Paid Leave (EPL) became effective on March 11, 2021? Did you know that the leave must be paid for by funds set aside by the American Rescue Plan? Have you read through OPM’s guidance on the topic?

No worries. During this 60-minute webinar, FELTG Senior Instructor Barbara Haga will share the details you need to understand the implementation and use of EPL. She will thoroughly explain the requirement that leave be paid for funds set aside by the American Rescue Plan and its impact on agencies and employees. Ms. Haga will also address the specifics of when the leave may be used, applying the pay cap, and understanding the impact on retirement of the use of the leave. The session will include scenarios that illustrate various leave use situations.

Instructor

Deborah Hopkins

Course Description

Remember those Trump Executive Orders that stressed progressive discipline was not mandatory? Well, those EOs are gone — rescinded and replaced by the new administration’s EOs. Does that mean that progressive discipline is now mandatory?

No it’s not, and you’re excused if you weren’t sure. The media has created a legend about the unfireable employee that continues to confuse and mislead many supervisors,

While it’s not mandatory, progressive discipline is a highly effective and useful disciplinary tool, even more so now under the Biden Administration. This 60-minute webinar will lay out the case for when and how to effectively use progressive discipline. FELTG President Deborah Hopkins will explain the foundations of discipline, and discuss cases where progressive discipline was used and cases where it wasn’t, along with the results of those decisions.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Differentiate between performance problems and misconduct
  • Identify instances where one act of misconduct was so bad, removal was warranted.
  • Understand the tricky concept of comparator employees.
