It outlines how the government handles adverse personnel actions in the civil service, and examines the laws and constitutional protections on due process employees enjoy. Susan Tsui Grundmann is chairwoman of the MSPB. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to review the report. She said it should clear up some misconceptions that have been circling in the press.

Susan Tsui Grundmann, Chairman, Merit Systems Protection Board

A new law signed by the President last month gives the Veterans Affairs secretary lots of discretion to fire or demote members of the Senior Executive Service. The law came in response to management problems resulting in long wait times for admittance to VA facilities. The law means SESers at VA work under a different set of civil service rules than those in the rest of government. It also imposes new burdens on the Merit Systems Protection Board. The board issued an interim final rule on how the agency will carry out the new mandate. Chairwoman Susan Tsui Grundmann joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the comments the board received about the rule and what the law does require of the board.
