H.R. 5169 would make it easier to discipline and fire career senior executives across the federal government.

This bill would make it easier for federal agencies to discipline and fire employees of the Senior Executive Service, the government’s cadre of top career professionals. Specifically, H.R. 5169 would: make senior executives eligible for one- to 14-day suspensions without pay, extend the initial probationary period of new senior executives from one to two years; add another category for suspending and firing a senior executive; require agencies to provide a written justification for each of its SES positions; require SES employees put on administrative leave during an investigation, and ultimately fired if the Merit Systems Protection Board sides with the agency, to pay back their salary and accrued annual leave for that period of time to the agency; require agencies to give SES employees a written description of their job performance requirements 30 days before each evaluation period; get rid of a provision in the current law which allows SES employees removed for performance and placed in a General Schedule job from retaining their SES salary.  

The House passed H.R. 5169 under suspension of the rules on Sept. 16, 2014.
