A new bill intends to expand U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board appeals rights to mid-level U.S. Postal Service management.

Reps. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., and David McKinley, R-W.Va., introduced HR 942, which, if signed into law, would confer appeal rights to approximately 7,500 Postal Service employees that currently do not possess the right to appeal adverse personnel actions.

“This is about ensuring a fair review process,” Connolly, House Oversight and Government Reform vice-ranking member, said in a news release. “Unfortunately, up until now, some mid-level managers have been left exposed without access to MSPB appeal rights. Our legislation seeks to remedy this unintended carve-out.”   

Those covered are non-bargaining unit career and non-career employees in a supervisory, professional, technical, clerical, administrative or managerial position covered by the Executive and Administrative Schedule; and that have completed one year of current continuous service in the same or similar positions.
