Susan Tsui Grundmann, Chairman, Merit Systems Protection Board

The Merit Systems Protection Board wants federal managers and Congress to know exactly what it takes to fire a federal employee and why you can't do so arbitrarily or capriciously. That's the subject of the agency's just-released report on due process. 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.
