Jeremiah Cassidy

During the last few years, the MSPB lacked a quorum and was unable to issue final decisions on petitions for review, while regional offices continued to issue initial decisions. Nevertheless, the Federal Circuit issued decisions such as Hessami v. MSPB and Santos v. NASA, that federal HR professionals and agency counsel should know. Mr. Cassidy and Mr. Weiss will discuss the significant rulings of the past year, updating you on decisions affecting discipline, whistleblower protections, and due process rights. Through the discussion, you'll gain a broad picture of the MSPB’s analytical processes regarding adverse actions, penalties, jurisdiction, settlements, and much more.
