On April 11, 2013, the Board published an interim final rule amending 5 CFR 1201.21(c). 78 FR 21517. Prior to publication of this interim rule, this regulation required that, when a federal agency issues a decision notice to an employee on a matter that is appealable to MSPB, the federal agency must provide the employee with “[a] copy of the MSPB appeal form . . . .” The interim rule amended this regulation to allow federal agencies to provide employees “[a] copy, or access to a copy, of the MSPB appeal form . . . .”
The Board received no comments in response to the interim rule. Therefore, the Board has determined to adopt the interim rule as final without change.
