Good Actions Gone Bad: Avoiding Involuntary Resignations and Retirements in your Agency




Resignations and retirements are normally voluntary – but can they become involuntary?  How bad is it if a resignation or retirement is judged to be involuntary?  Spoiler alert: you DON’T want this to happen to you.

For those answers – and much more – join instructor Barbara Haga as she explains what exactly about resignations and retirements make them voluntary, and the management actions that might cause an employee-initiated action to be overturned by the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) as a constructive removal.

She’ll also cover

  • Regulatory requirements related to withdrawal of resignations and retirements
  • Various problem elements in involuntary separation cases
  • Who shares in the responsibility if an employee-initiated action is ruled to be involuntary
  • Strategies to avoid so that your agency’s actions won’t be overturned
  • A review of relevant MSPB decisions

The information that will be covered in this seminar is not something you want to learn the hard way!
