Can a federal employee assigned to a permanent supervisory billet be re-assigned to a non-supervisory permanent billet without any disciplinary or adverse action?
Assuming that you maintain the same grade and were not demoted, then yes. Your employing Agency has broad discretion to place you where you best fit its needs, so long as that is not for any illegal reason, such as whistleblower reprisal or discrimination.
