Sessions will be held on Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET.

Deborah HopkinsAnn Boehm

Series Description

One is mandatory, the other is not. But they are both important steps to ensure that you’ve made a defensible disciplinary decision. We’re talking due process and progressive discipline. FELTG’s newest webinar series will tackle these critical yet often-misunderstood steps in developing and defending disciplinary decisions. You are not legally required to use progressive discipline before you remove an employee. But in many cases you should, and we’ll explain how and why.

Violate Constitutional due process, and your agency will automatically lose an appeal regardless of the evidence. What constitutes due process? And how have agencies tripped up on it? We’ll walk you through it.

Federal law enforcement officers take on incredibly difficult jobs and often perform heroically. But they are human, and so they sometimes commit misconduct – and the consequences are far greater. We’ll wrap up the series with a dive into how to successfully discipline at agencies with LEOs. The course will be led by an instructor with over 20 years of experience in a federal law enforcement environment.

Sessions will be held on Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET.

  • March 19 – Using Progressive Discipline in the Federal Workplace: The foundations of discipline; performance vs. misconduct; options to discipline; when to use progressive discipline; comparator employees; what the Executive Orders say about progressive discipline.
  • April 16 – Due Process Violations: How One Mistake Could Cost You the Case: Constitutional due process and its application to the federal workforce; discipline procedures; the roles of the proposing and deciding official; Ward and Stone violations; discipline timelines as required by Executive Order 13839.
  • May 14 – Handling Law Enforcement Officer Discipline: Conduct standards for law enforcement officers; off-duty misconduct; Douglas factors of specific importance in LEO discipline; Giglio determinations; procedures when LEOs commit felonies.

Price

  • Early Bird Tuition: $240 per site, per session (payment made by March 9).
  • Standard Tuition: $270 per site, per session (payment made March 10 or later).
  • Register for all six webinars by March 9 and pay only $695!

A new era of federal LR was ushered in with President Trump’s three executive orders, which cleared court review in 2019.
