Description

Learn how public health and safety disasters are linked to public employment laws. Examine how public employment law influences the development and implementation of public policy. Ethics, whistleblower protection, the right to disobey illegal orders, the protections of public employees from improper disciplinary or personnel actions and the history of civil service law in the United States are among the topics discussed in the seminar. The seminar addresses several questions including: Are changes in federal employment law necessary to make the government more accountable and to assure the rule of law? How should concerns with national security influence protections for federal employees? Are protections for federal employees impediments to effective management? What protections are available to federal employee whistleblowers at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and at national security agencies? Should special protection be given to federal scientists?
