Federal Employees Legal Survival GuideNEW THIRD EDITION!

Authored by Passman & Kaplan attorneys  noted experts in federal civil service law  this 673-page volume is the "bible" for federal employees and their advocates.

Passman & Kaplan announces the October 2014 publication of the THIRD EDITION of the Federal Employees Legal Survival Guide. This comprehensive book, first authored by Passman & Kaplan in 1999, and updated in 2004, has been called the definitive how-to guide for enforcing the rights of federal employees. The third edition of the Guide includes about 60 PAGES OF ADDITIONAL NEW MATERIAL and useful advice. New features include information on furloughs, non-critical sensitive positions, personal liability, federal employee special categories, internet research, Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), updated privacy and medical confidentiality and also updated whistleblowers protection.

The Guide also includes a listing of frequently used civil service acronyms and practical appendices of sample forms, charts illustrating appeal rights, and commonly-needed deadlines. As with the first and second editions of the Guide, Passman & Kaplan has attempted to move away from the legalese which so often complicates an already-bewildering array of regulations and policies. Although the Federal Employees Legal Survival Guide, Third Edition is clearly an invaluable resource for practioners, Passman & Kaplan has maintained its commitment to target the book to the average federal employee.

"The insight and knowledge provided in this comprehensive guide of federal employee rights are beyond comparison." Delia L. Johnson, Co-Chair, Federal EEO and Civil Rights Council
