Case SUMMARY

FAA rescinded suspension after grievance

Our client worked for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).  He supervised an employee who filed false time and attendance and travel records.  As a result, the agency charged our client with “conduct unbecoming” and proposed to suspend him for 20 days.  We argued that, as a second-line supervisor, our client was not responsible for the behavior of an employee two levels below.  The deciding official mitigated the penalty to a 14-day suspension.  After we filed a grievance, the agency rescinded the suspension altogether.
