Frequently Asked Questions Employee Relations

How much specific information needs to go into a proposal notice to remove?

We have provided a sample of an action proposed under Part 432 in the appendix to this booklet, but the real answer to this question lies in your agency. Each agency has a "culture" that defines the amount of information and documentation that will go into a proposal notice. At a minimum, your notice will state which regulation the action is being taken under, specify what critical performance element(s) the employee failed to meet, cite the evidence of unacceptable performance, and discuss the opportunity period (or the lack of one). The notice will also explain to the employee the time allowed for a written and/or oral response. Ask your human resources specialist for some samples of other performance-based notices to get a sense of what your agency requires.
