Ask the Lawyer received the following question (paraphrased for easier reading and clarity) from a reader on a legal matter that might be of interest to the entire audience.
Do federal agencies have internal policies or directives on adverse actions?
Some agencies have internal policies including tables of penalties. If an agency has a policy, it must be consistent with law and it imposes obligation on the agency to follow its stated policies. These policies should be publicly available.
