The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is set to discuss a number of bills intended to change the rules on Senior Executive Service accountability and paid leaves, Federal News Radio reported Friday.
Nicole Ogrysko writes Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) is expected to introduce the Senior Executive Service Accountability Act, which proposes a two-year probationary period for career employees.
The bill also wants to allow career appointees who are removed from service for poor performance to get their basic pay received before they joined the SES, according to the report.
Other measures contained in the bill include a 14-day suspension for career appointees accused of misconduct, authorization for agency leaders to remove employees and reassignment of career appointees, the station reports.
Legislators will also tackle at a business meeting a proposed U.S. Code amendment that aims to change probationary periods for competitive service and SES members, Federal News Radio reports.
Ogrysko writes Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) will also introduce the Official Personnel File Enhancement Act, which calls for the addition of investigation findings to an employee’s personnel file.
