@Rivkah, after reading the Latham et al v USPS oral briefing/arguments at https://www.mspb.gov/media/121311-MSPB-LATHAM.pdf the case qualified as having MSPB jurisdiction because it was based on 5 affected PO employees due to an unlawful USPS policy of the NRP. Unlawful agency policies are covered under MSPB absent any person needing to have a specific employment status (ex military, supervisor ect..). Any change in the MSPB rules would serve to push cases outside of the administrative arena and into the Federal court system.

Former Inspector Failure to restore to duty after a compensable injury for non management postal employees falls under mspb. As VW stated, it would be a mixed complaint. The Latham case was in that category.

The vast majority of non supervisory/managerial PO employees do not qualify for MSPB appeal of termination. Only former military members/reservists have MSPB rights to appeal termination/adverse actions. This new law (if actualized) will be used by the PO to cull the ranks of PO supervisors/managers who currently have MSPB appeal rights. Nothing changes for the regular workers.

Hey all I am attaching a link to this post as there is currently a bill in Congress that will seriously affect the time limits you have to file a complaint with MSPB. I am nit trying to make any kind of political statement by sharing the article nor am I trying to start any type of political debate. Just want to make sure you guys are informed especially with filing an EEO. Some EEO's are Mixed complaint EEO's and this will affect your time limits for filing. Hope you can find this information useful.

I had a right to sue and the Judge dismissed it with prejudice and the USPS also wanted it sealed. Why would they wanted it sealed ? Judge says I didn’t file EEO on time and Sealed it also. Is it because they know what they did was wrong?

If the supervisor was screaming at you, do you have witnesses? I would assume if they have witnesses, so should you. Zero tolerance is supposed to apply to ALL employees, including supervisors. Look for others who can identify other instances of such behavior from this supervisor. I would start at the office from which the supervisor came, also.

Jeanne - The Union should be fighting this removal for you. I'm not sure if Zero Tolerance needs to show the steps of a "discussion' first, then a "letter of warning' next and then removal, but Zero Tolerance should be for violent threats and worse. You need to appeal for your unemployment benefits. You're gonna have to look up legal citations to back your case up to show that Zero Tolerance is for violent threats or worse behavior and show that you don't have any 'discussions' or 'letter of warnings' regarding this in your file.

 was removed for 0 toletance May 8 2018.
My supervisor was screaming at me I yelled back, nothing profane or anything.
27 years in.

I an off clock but filed all the grievances.

I have nothing on my record.

I noticed after my step 3
Management pulled stuff from 2009, 2014 and some lies.

I dont feel like thats right to do. I am surprised the Union sent that stuff on. We have a great Union President and NBA.

What is the process to stop that crap from being added?

Hi, I was not involved in the NRP. I’ve spoken to OWCP, they are not the one who processes the refunds. I did contact my congresswoman. Hopefully she can get them to pay me what’s owed to me.

Silvester. Have you spoken to owcp? You can contact your congressman.

@Silvester, were you evaluated under the NRP. You have been on the OWCP rolls since 2008 to now. Make sure to get a NRP class action claim form sent in then check out the NRP forum on this site. Go back and read posts from around 3/20/2018 to today.

I hope someone can help, I’ll try and make this short. I was injured on the job and have been on OWCP rolls for over 10 yrs. Still employed as city carrier, not working. postal service has been taking incorrect amount for health benefits out of my check since 2013 till now. Was supposed to be refunded every quarter, they failed to do so. Grievances filed and won but still have not revceived my refund. Union is ignoring me. HR sup says she don’t know what to tell me. No one will help. Can I file EEO? If so how? I feel discriminated against because I’m disabled. Can I take the USPS to small claims court? Edit to add this has been going on since 2013 and has caused me hardship and massive stress.

Limpy1 I think there should be another class action lawsuit filed against the USPS, because I am still trying to collect OWCP for a 2013 injury that was never sent up and authorization for treatment was always denied. I finally got the claim approved, but for the obstruction of the USPS I have yet to get paid for loss wages. Under OWCP law management is suppose to submit the forms when an injury is reported or is known of and if not they are in violation of obstruction, but it seems they are not being punished for this.

I don't know.

No I did not stupidly. I was allowed to return to work so I let it go as i just wanted my job.
I wonder if I can now as my denial is claiming the post office just notified them in their statement that I did not submit forms. I'm wondering if I can now file against the post office as I was just informed of repercussions of their not doing so and their recent untrue claim.

Limpy You cannot file an eeo against owcp. Did you file an eeo against the po when you found out they didn't submit the form?

If i filled out injury forms in 2013 that were never submitted and have them stamped as received by usps and a copy of letter from a district comp lady stating my supervisor never filled them out as they were waiting for my medical and were not the form she suggested (a CA2A not a CA2) do I have any recourse?
I received an OWCP denial as they repeatedly claim I didn't fill out forms in 2013. Just received a recon denial that said the same even after showing I had indeed submitted them.
First denial I proved it yet they claimed I sent nothing so denied on the basis of no forms submitted in 2013. Proved again otherwise and carbon copy denial. As I just received this answer and repercussion of this fact of refusal to acknowledge my injury form can I file an EEO on this basis?
