There are times when agencies find themselves facing litigation from employees or former employees. There are also times when agencies choose to resolve the dispute through a settlement. This session was designed to provide general guidance to agencies in order to help them structure settlements that are consistent with all Federal personnel laws, including those civil service benefit laws that are OPM's responsibility. When crafting settlements, agency HR professionals should still be working through their Office of General Counsel as well as OPM’s General Counsel; however, this class was designed to prepare you for those discussions. Since this is a complex subject, the session is intended for those experienced HR professionals who have a firm grasp of the most complex retirement issues.
