(2014) Phoenix, AZ


– In 2012 a Federal law enforcement officer removed from his position as a probationary employee. Matter appealed to the MSPB (Denver regional office) for a non-frivolous allegation of jurisdiction asserting the officer was not a probationary employee but had chapter 75 rights as a federal employee. The initial decision upheld the agency dismissal as a probationary removal. The matter was appealed to the full MSPB. The decision overturned the initial decision and remanded back for further adjudication.
