January 2023 Federal Employment Law Training Group Newsletter

The State of the Civil Service — And More

Only a week ago, I was saying “Happy New Year” with regularity. Suddenly, and in the span of just a few days, it seems that 2023 is well under way.

Things certainly look different this year than they did last January. We’ll kick off this month’s newsletter with the annual State of the Civil Service article, including updates on MSPB, EEOC, FLRA, and OPM.

But that’s not all. We’ll also discuss topics, including:

  • Clean record agreements and impacts on hiring practices
  • Forgotten benefits of in-person training
  • How certain days of the week are required for telework as a reasonable accommodation
  • Federal workplace trends in 2023

We get many of our newsletter ideas from FELTG readers. If there’s something you’d like us to write about in 2023, email us or Ask FELTG.

We’d love to hear from you.

Take care,


Deborah J. Hopkins, FELTG President
