Third parties under the federal labor-management relations program adjudicate a wide range of issues, and the remedies they offer must conform to the requirements of law and regulation. GAO prepared the manual to assist third parties in fashioning remedies consistent with federal statutes and regulations. The manual details the available remedies for the most common cases requiring make-whole remedies. It is divided into separate issue areas: discharges or suspensions; demotions; promotions; leave; overtime compensation; resignation or voluntary reduction in rank; equal employment opportunity violations; work assignment; pay; and miscellaneous cases. Each issue area has a general description of the type of case involved and the determination a third party must make to permit a particular remedy. Also listed are available remedies and their effective dates, the statutory authorities, and recent Comptroller General decisions as references.
