Workforce changes may still lie ahead for federal employees in 2023
Agencies’ ‘future of work’ plans, priorities in the President’s Management Agenda and hiring reform efforts defined 2022 for federal employees.
A new bill introduced in the House of Representatives, titled the Public Service Reform Act, is not about public service and is certainly not reform. Rather than addressing accountability or hiring and pay challenges, the bill would make all federal workers at-will employees. The result would be a civil service that is little more than two million political appointees.
