AGENCY:

Merit Systems Protection Board.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB or “the Board”) is publishing final regulations that adopt previously published interim regulations revising 5 CFR part 1207. These final regulations are necessary to reconcile the Board's regulations with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, 29 U.S.C. 794, and to clarify the procedures for processing those complaints filed against the Board that allege discrimination on the basis of disability during the Board's adjudication of a related employee appeal.

DATES:

This rule is effective August 26, 2005.
