April 2024 Federal Employment Law Training Group Newsletter

Exciting Times Ahead

Here at FELTG, we are excited, nay thrilled, to announce we’ll soon be launching a brand-new website that’s easier to navigate and more user-friendly. A few features you might enjoy:

  • A new logo and color scheme.
  • The ability to register and pay for a class directly from the website (yes, really!).
  • An updated course catalog that can be filtered by training category, class length, and topic.

We’re aiming for an early summer launch and can’t wait to see what you think about it. Our hope is that it makes life a whole lot easier! In the meantime, you can register for all our upcoming classes, including Emerging Issues in Federal Employment Law, Conducting Effective Harassment Investigations, FLRA Law Week, and more.


In this month’s newsletter, we discuss cases involving employee sexual misconduct, formal discussions and Weingarten meetings, clean record agreements, the “coming and going” rule, and the dangers of changing an existing reasonable accommodation.

Take care,

Deborah J. Hopkins, FELTG President
