Frequently Asked Questions Classification

If I designate a representative for my classification or job grading appeal, what is his or her role?

A representative can assist in preparing and presenting an appeal.  The representative has the same obligation as the appellant to cooperate in processing the appeal, including relaying instructions from OPM to the appellant and promptly providing information to OPM upon request.  A representative has no right to be present or participate in an OPM General Schedule appeal audit or interview with the appellant (See section 511.608 of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)) and may not be present to participate in a Federal Wage System appeal audit or interview (See 5 CFR 532.705(c)).
