MSPB Awards Postal Supervisor Pay For Performance Bonus in Back Pay

From Postal Reporter reader Don Cheney

“[T]he appellant has requested the Board to reconsider its determination in its previous decision that he is not entitled to pay for performance as part of the back pay to which the agency agreed.  For the reasons stated below, the Board on reconsideration has determined that the appellant is entitled to pay for performance during the back pay period and finds that its payment is required for the agency to be in full compliance.”

“This case involves the enforcement of a settlement agreement’s provision awarding back pay from the date of the appellant’s demotion to a PS-05 mail processing clerk position to the date he was placed in the top step of an EAS 17 supervisor position.”
