For many supervisors and HR specialists, the word “reassignment” is met with anxiety, angst, and apprehension. There are few in the federal workplace with the confidence to effectively employ this under-utilized management tool. And if it’s not in your toolbox, you’re missing something important.
FELTG instructor Ann Boehm, who spent 26 years as a government attorney focused primarily on employment and labor law, is here to set you straight. She will walk you through management-directed reassignment for business reasons, reassignment for performance reasons, and reassignment as reasonable accommodation for a disability. The 90-minute webinar will cover many facets of reassignment, including:
- What to do when an employee refuses reassignment as a reasonable accommodation.
- When you can legally and unilaterally reassign an employee.
- How to handle an employee request for reassignment.
