Instructor and two course attendees view document in hand

Does your agency have a group of executives or managers who would benefit from a short, specific, targeted presentation of federal employment law topics? Are you looking for a jolt to get your internal training program off to a good start? FELTG’s dynamic presenters are ready to bring one of our 90-minute keynote presentations to your site. The presentations can be targeted to agency leaders, HR and EEO professionals, managers and supervisors, or employees, with topics including accountability, management skills, sexual harassment, and more. Need a topic that’s not on the list? FELTG can also provide a keynote on a topic of your choice. Contact us for more details.


KP-1:UnCivil Servant: Holding Federal Employees Accountable for Performance and Conduct

Course Description: Based on the book by William Wiley and Deborah Hopkins (now in its 5th edition), this keynote presentation of FELTG’s signature training program provides an eye-opening look at how agencies consistently make performance and conduct actions more difficult than they need to be. A lot of people think the system is broken. It’s not; the tools are just not being used correctly. Learn the actions you can take that will hold employees accountable and withstand scrutiny on appeal by the MSPB, EEOC, or in grievance arbitration.


KP-2: Combating a Hostile Work Environment

Course Description: A hostile work environment is more than sexual harassment. A hostile environment can be alleged based on any protected category, and it’s a common EEO claim in the federal sector. Left unaddressed, a hostile work environment will lead to diminished performance, weakened morale, and, quite possibly, a costly finding of EEO discrimination.  We’ll explain the concept of hostile work environment, discuss the responsibilities of all parties, and share what your agency can do to maintain a hostile-free work environment.


KP-3: These Are the Leadership Lessons I’m Learning

Course Description: Leadership expert Dr. Anthony Marchese discusses current leadership challenges facing federal agencies and offers practical solutions to meet them. This keynote presentation is aimed at the high-performing leader. Not only will you take away guidance on how to handle your toughest challenges, you’ll build your leadership knowledge and skills in the process.


KP-4: You Can’t Hide: Accommodating Unseen Disabilities

Course Description: From chronic pain and chronic fatigue to depression and diabetes, disabilities are not always visible or obvious in the workplace. As the federal workforce ages, the number of employees with hidden disabilities continues to grow. This can make providing reasonable accommodation a challenge for leaders, supervisors, and colleagues. Learn how to properly navigate Rehabilitation Act regulations and EEOC guidance while taking a commonsense approach to reasonably accommodating hidden disabilities.  


KP-5: The What, How and Why of Working With Your Agency’s OIG

Course Description: How well do you know what your agency’s Office of Inspector General does? Did you know that much of the OIG’s work likely overlaps or interconnects with what your office does? James Protin, whose 30-year federal career included several positions in the National Security Agency’s Office of Inspector General, will not only explain what the OIG does, but how you can work with them, and why that’s important to your unit’s success.


 

KP-6: The Supervisor’s Role in EEO

Course Description: Nothing strikes fear in the heart of a supervisor like the thought of an EEO complaint. And few things should scare agency leaders more than the way a supervisor reacts to an EEO complaint.

In this keynote geared to those supervisors, FELTG takes the mystery and the shame out of being named in an EEO complaint. Supervisors will understand protected categories and theories of discrimination and, more importantly, they will learn what to do during each step of the EEO process.


 

KP-7: When Performance Goes Bad: The Path to Accountability

Course Description: When it comes to the ODAP, the DP, or the PIP, a lot of the advice you get is BS. But not from FELTG. This keynote gets to the heart of how to handle performance challenges. Attendees will learn the FELTG Way to manage an opportunity to demonstrate performance. And if the employee fails the ODAP, attendees will be able to confidently, effectively, and quickly remove the employee for poor performance.


 

KP-8: How Much Do You Really Know About Disability Accommodation?

Course Description: The Rehabilitation Act is more than 45 years old, and the amendments that changed the Americans With Disabilities Act Amendments Act became effective more than 10 years ago. Yet, too many agencies continue to follow outdated procedures that are not compliant with the law. Let FELTG take the complexity out of the process. An overview of the latest in disability law and walk through the most complex reasonable accommodations, such as requests for telework, will feed attendees the knowledge and confidence to effectively address requests for reasonable accommodation.


 

KP-9: The Civil Civil Servant: Protections, Performance, and Conduct

Course Description: Your new employees have a lot to learn. And if their new job is their first, or if they formerly worked for the private sector, then they have a lot to unlearn. That’s where Civil Civil Servant comes in. The keynote version of FELTG’s half-day and full-day course for new employees explains those aspects of employment that are unique to the federal workplaces, such as merit system principles, as well as EEO, whistleblower, and retaliation protections. And we’ll explain that they can be fired for misconduct and performance – and they do have to abide by supervisors’ rules. Civil Civil Servant meet the requirements for the mandatory No FEAR Act training for new employees.

Course Description

Navigating the FMLA is one of the most complex challenges a federal agency can face unless, of course, it is navigating the ADA at the same time. What’s the difference between a serious health condition and an ADA disability? Does the FMLA limit on leave apply to a reasonable accommodation of leave? This 60-minute webinar will compare and contrast coverage under the FMLA and coverage under the ADA, discuss the tricky role of medical documentation, and review leave under the FMLA and as a reasonable accommodation.

This is the second of four webinars on Navigating Challenges in the EEO Process.
