New Developments in Employee
and Labor Relations

New Developments in Employee and Labor Relations is designed to identify important new case law, policies, and initiatives in Federal employee and labor relations. The case descriptions are necessarily concise and are only intended to provide enough detail to allow readers to identify cases of potential interest.

These descriptions should not be interpreted as the Office of Personnel Management's endorsement of the case law, and some of the holdings raised in the descriptions may be inconsistent with the Office of Personal Management's policy and subject to continuing litigation. Readers are also reminded that in some instances the Office of Personnel Management's policy may be modified by individual agency regulations and applicable collective bargaining agreements. In such cases, consultation with agency headquarters staff is essential.

Questions or comments may be mailed to the Employee Relations Division, U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Room 7425, Theodore Roosevelt Building, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20415-2000. You may call us at (202) 606-2920; fax (202) 606-0967; or email
