May 2024 Federal Employment Law Training Group Newsletter

Three Reasons to Choose FELTG for Training

Happy May, FELTG readers. As we launch this month’s newsletter, I wanted to share three things you should know about FELTG as you make your summer training plans:

  1. Training isn’t just what we do, it’s all we do. FELTG classes are not a tangential offering as part of a larger company; our sole focus is making our classes the best they can be for you, our attendees.
  2. Our instructors are amazing. Really and truly, they balance expert knowledge with humor and engagement, and you won’t be disappointed – whether you attend virtually or in person.
  3. Because FELTG is an SBA-certified Woman Owned Small Business, you can help your agency meet its small business contracting goals while learning about the most important aspects of Federal employment law and broader workplace issues.

In this month’s newsletter, we discuss a precedential MSPB decision involving excessive absence removals, new EEOC guidance on harassment, plus accommodating emotional support animals, dealing with workplace injuries, and getting started on misconduct investigations.

Take care,

Deborah J. Hopkins, FELTG President
