Schedule A hiring authority allows agencies to hire individuals with disabilities non-competitively, thus eliminating the need to post a job opening or certify a certain number of candidates for an open position. The use of Schedule A is beneficial to agencies and to qualified employees with disabilities, but many agencies don’t understand the process or how to take advantage of this special authority.
Join FELTG instructor Rock Rockenbach, attorney at law, as he discusses how agencies can best determine which jobs fit with Schedule A authority, and how to decide whether those appointments should be temporary or permanent. He’ll cover the placement process and the steps to providing reasonable accommodation under Schedule A, and will clarify the meaning of targeted disabilities and how those fit into the overall scheme of Schedule A hiring.
In addition, Mr. Rockenbach will discuss:
- The two-year probationary period under Schedule A
- Performance and conduct standards for Schedule A employees
- How to recruit qualified candidates
- Hiring individuals with targeted disabilities
- Converting Schedule A employees to permanent, competitive employees
Attend this FELTG seminar to learn all you need to know about taking advantage of Schedule A – thus reducing onboarding time from months to weeks – at your agency. Disability program managers, EEO and HR staff, OGC attorneys, and even supervisors won’t want to miss this one.
