RIF pecking order


Q. If a reduction in force occurs, do they consider the time you are in your current position, total time at the agency or total federal time when considering who has seniority? I am in a position for less time than one of my peers, but I have been at the agency longer and have a 30 percent service-connected disability.

A. To find out where in the pecking order you would be placed in a reduction in force, go to www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/workforce-restructuring/reduction-in-force.
