Labor-Management Guidance

AFSA's dedicated labor management staff always stands ready to assist our members with any kind of question or problem related, for example, to security clearances or violations, denial of tenure, employment-related performance evaluation, discipline/selection out, etc. They spend most of their time on individual cases - consultations, meetings, grievance representation and so on. We encourage you to know your rights and to seek out our lawyers and advisors whose main task is to represent your interests.

As you consider your individual situation, many questions may come up. Is this comment on my EER/AEF grievable? How to I find out whether I have the grounds for an EEO complaint? What do I do when DS or the IG show up and want to ask me questions? What are AFSA's rights and responsibilities while representing me? Our labor management team has compiled a selection of general answers to some of these questions, and these are available here for our members. The list is not comprehensive, and some questions may only be answered by speaking to our lawyers and advisors in person. We always encourage you to do so.

The following basic information may be of some assistance as you confront a question or problem.
