COMPLAINT OF POSSIBLE PROHIBITED PERSONNEL PRACTICE
OR
OTHER PROHIBITED ACTIVITY

 

IMPORTANT

Before filling out this Office of Special Counsel (OSC) form, please read the following information about: (1) the required complaint format; (2) the scope of OSC’s jurisdiction; and (3) certain OSC policies. OSC cannot investigate a complaint if it lacks jurisdiction over the subject matter. Further, filing a complaint with OSC will not extend any time limits that may exist under any other complaint procedures that may be available. It is important, therefore, that you consider whether OSC may lack jurisdiction over your complaint.

If you plan to file a complaint alleging reprisal for whistleblowing, important information about the elements required by law to establish such a violation is provided in Part 2 of this form (at page 4).



INFORMATION ABOUT FILING A COMPLAINT WITH OSC 

Required Complaint Form. Complaints alleging a prohibited personnel practice, or a prohibited activity other than a Hatch Act violation, must be submitted on this form. OSC will not process complaints (except a complaint alleging only a Hatch Act violation) that are not submitted on this form. OSC will return the material received, with a blank complaint form to complete and return to OSC. The complaint will be considered to be filed on the date on which OSC receives the completed form. 5 C.F.R. 1800.1, as amended.

No OSC Jurisdiction. OSC has no jurisdiction over complaints filed by employees of –

  • the Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, or other intelligence agency excluded from coverage by the President;
  • the armed forces of the United States (i.e., uniformed military employees);
  • the General Accounting Office;
  • the Postal Rate Commission; and
  • the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Limited OSC Jurisdiction. OSC has jurisdiction over certain types of complaints filed by employees of some agencies, as follows –

  • Federal Aviation Administration employees alleging reprisal for whistleblowing;
  • employees of government corporations listed at 31 U.S.C. 9101 alleging reprisal for whistleblowing;
  • U.S. Postal Service employees alleging nepotism; and
  • Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees alleging reprisal for whistleblowing:  TSA non-screener employees may file complaints alleging retaliation for protected whistleblowing under 5 U.S.C. 2302(b)(8). OSC will process these complaints under its regular procedures, including filing petitions with the Merit Systems Protection Board, if warranted. TSA security screeners may also file complaints alleging retaliation for protected whistleblowing under 5 U.S.C. 2302(b)(8) pursuant to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between OSC and TSA executed on May 28, 2002. The MOU and TSA Directive HRM Letter No. 1800-01 provide OSC with authority to investigate whistleblower retaliation complaints from screeners and recommend that TSA take corrective and/or disciplinary action when warranted. Additional information on OSC procedures for reviewing security screener whistleblower complaints under the MOU is available at http://www.osc.gov/tsa-info.htm.

INFORMATION ABOUT FILING A COMPLAINT WITH OSC (cont'd) 



Election of Remedies for Employees Covered By a Collective Bargaining Agreement. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 7121(g), if you are covered by a collective bargaining agreement, you must choose one of three possible avenues to pursue your prohibited personnel practice complaint: (a) a complaint to OSC; (b) an appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) (if the action is appealable under law or regulation), or (c) a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement. If you have already filed an appeal about your prohibited personnel practice allegations with the MSPB, or a grievance about those allegations under the collective bargaining agreement, OSC lacks jurisdiction over your complaint and cannot investigate it.

Deferral of Certain Complaints Involving Discrimination. Although OSC is authorized to investigate discrimination based upon race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or handicapping condition, as well as reprisal for filing an EEO complaint, OSC generally defers such allegations to agency procedures established under regulations issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). 5 C.F.R. 1810.1. If you wish to report allegations of discrimination based upon race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or handicapping condition, or reprisal for filing an EEO complaint, you should contact your agency’s EEO office immediately. There are specific time limits for filing such complaints. Filing a complaint with OSC will not relieve you of the obligation to file a complaint with the agency’s EEO office within the time prescribed by EEOC regulations (at 29 C.F.R. Part 1614).

Note: This deferral policy does not apply to discrimination claims outside the jurisdiction of the EEOC, such as complaints alleging discrimination based upon marital status or political affiliation.

Deferral of Complaints Involving Veterans Rights. By law, complaints alleging: (a) discrimination based on veteran or reservist status, (b) denial of veteran/reservist re-employment rights, and (c) denial of veterans’ preference requirements, must be filed with the Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS) at the Department of Labor. 38 U.S.C. 4301, et seq., and 5 U.S.C. 3330a(a).

Note: An appeal of category (a) and (b) allegations may also be filed directly with the MSPB, rather than by means of a complaint to VETS. 5 C.F.R. 1208.11.

PART 2: REPRISAL FOR WHISTLEBLOWING


This part of the form is solely for use by persons alleging reprisal for whistleblowing (that is, persons who believe that personnel actions were taken, not taken, or threatened because of a whistleblower disclosure). Please read the introductory material before answering the questions that follow. Use the continuation sheet on page 12 if more space is needed.

Complainants not alleging reprisal for whistleblowing should proceed to Part 3 (“Consent to Certain Disclosures of Information”), at page 9.


Reprisal for Whistleblowing Allegations


As a general rule, it is a prohibited personnel practice to take or fail to take, or threaten to take or fail to take, a personnel action because of a protected disclosure of certain types of information by a Federal employee, former employee, or applicant for Federal employment. 5 U.S.C. 2302(b)(8).

Legal Elements of a Violation

By law, certain elements must be present before OSC can establish that a legal violation of law has occurred. Two of the required elements that must be established are: (1) that a whistleblower disclosure was made; and (2) that an agency took, failed to take, or threatened to take or fail to take a personnel action because of the whistleblower disclosure. Your description of these elements will help OSC's investigation of your allegation(s).

Protected Disclosures

A disclosure of information is a protected whistleblower disclosure if a Federal employee, former employee, or applicant for Federal employment discloses information which he or she reasonably believes evidences: (a) a violation of any law, rule, or regulation; (b) gross mismanagement; (c) a gross waste of funds; (d) abuse of authority; or (e) a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety.

Covered Personnel Actions

The law prohibiting reprisal for whistleblowing requires proof that one or more of the following personnel actions occurred, or failed to occur, because of a protected disclosure: 

 

COMPLAINT OF POSSIBLE PROHIBITED PERSONNEL PRACTICE OR OTHER PROHIBITED ACTIVITY 
Page 5 of 12
___________________________________________________________________________________________

(1) an appointment; 
(2) a promotion; 
(3) an action under 5 U.S.C. chapter 75 or other disciplinary or corrective action; 
(4) a detail, transfer, or reassignment; 
(5) a reinstatement;
(6) a restoration; 
(7) a reemployment;
(8) a decision about pay, benefits, or awards, concerning education or training if the education or training may reasonably be expected to lead to an appointment, promotion, performance evaluation, or other action described in 5 U.S.C. 2302(a)(2);
(9) a performance evaluation under 5 U.S.C. chapter 43; 
(10) a decision to order psychiatric testing or examination; or
(11) any other significant change in duties, responsibilities , or working conditions.


Reporting Your Allegation(s)

In the section that starts below (pages 6-8), provide the information requested about all disclosures that you believe led to reprisal by the agency involved. If more space is needed, use extra copies of page 6-8, or the Continuation Sheet at page 12. If any of the disclosures were in writing, please provide a copy of the disclosure with your complaint

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU LIST ALL DISCLOSURES AND PERSONNEL ACTIONS INVOLVED IN YOUR COMPLAINT. This is because: (1) failure to list any disclosure or personnel action may delay the processing of your complaint by OSC; and (2) a comprehensive listing will avoid disputes in any later Individual Right of Action (IRA) appeal that you may file with the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) about its jurisdiction to hear case.

Additional allegations of reprisal for whistleblowing may be added to this complaint while it is pending at OSC. Submission of any such additional allegations to OSC in writing will help you if you decide to file any later IRA appeal with the MSPB. Form OSC-11a is available for that purpose at OSC's web site, under "Forms."

Appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB)

If OSC fails to complete its review of your whistleblower reprisal allegation within 120 days after it receives your complaint, or if it closes your complaint at any time without seeking corrective action on your behalf, you have the right to file  IRA appeal with the MSPB. 5 U.S.C. 1214.6(a)(3).

Recordkeeping

To establish its jurisdiction over any later IRA appeal that you may file, the MSPB will require you to show that the appeal relates to the same whistleblower disclosure(s) and personnel action(s) involved in your complaint to OSC.  A copy of the whistleblower reprisal allegations in your complaint, any supporting documentation about those allegations that you sent with the complaint, and any additional allegation of reprisal that you submitted in writing to OSC while the complaint was pending, will serve as proof in any IRA of the disclosure(s) and personnel action(s) involved in your OSC complaint. IT IS IMPORTANT, THEREFORE, THAT YOU MAKE AND KEEP COPIES OF ALL THESE DOCUMENT FOR YOUR RECORDS.

  PART 3: CONSENT TO CERTAIN DISCLOSURES OF INFORMATION


OSC asks everyone who files a complaint alleging a possible prohibited personnel practice or other prohibited activity to select one of three Consent Statements shown below.  IF YOU DO NOT SELECT ONE OF THE THREE CONSENT STATEMENTS BELOW, OSC WILL ASSUME THAT YOU HAVE SELECTED CONSENT STATEMENT 1. Please: (a) select and sign (or check, if filing electronically) one of the Consent Statements below; and (b) keep a copy of the Consent Statement you select (as well as a copy of all documents that  you send to OSC) for your own records.
If you initially select a Consent Statement that restricts OSC's use of information, you may later select a less restrictive Consent Statement. If your selection of Consent Statement 2 or 3 prevents OSC from being able to conduct an investigation, an OSC representative will contact you, explain the circumstances, and provide you with an opportunity to select a less restrictive Consent Statement.
You should be aware that the Privacy Act allows information in OSC case files to be used or disclosed for certain purposes, regardless of which Consent Statement you sign. See 5 U.S.C. 552a(b). Information about certain circumstances under which OSC can use or disclose information under the Privacy Act appears on the next page.

(Please sign one)


Consent Statement 1 

I consent to OSC’s communication with the agency involved in my complaint. I agree to allow OSC to disclose my identity as the complainant, and information from or about me, to the agency if OSC decides that such disclosure is needed to investigate the allegation(s) in my complaint (for example, to request information from the agency, or seek a possible resolution through mediation or corrective action). I understand that regardless of the Consent Statement I choose, OSC may disclose information from my complaint file when permitted by the Privacy Act (including circumstances summarized in Part 5, below).

_________________________________________________________ 
Complainant's Signature for Consent Statement 1
_______________________________ 
Date Signed


Consent Statement 2 

I consent to OSC’s communication with the agency involved in my complaint, but I do not agree to allow OSC to disclose my identity as the complainant to that agency. I agree to allow OSC to disclose only information from or about me, without disclosing my name or other identifying information, if OSC decides that such disclosure is needed to investigate the allegation(s) in my complaint (for example, to request information from the agency, or seek a possible resolution through mediation or corrective action). I understand that in some circumstances (for example, if I am complaining about my failure to receive a promotion), OSC could not maintain my anonymity while communicating with the agency involved about a specific personnel action. In such cases, I understand that this request for confidentiality might prevent OSC from taking further action on my complaint. I also understand that regardless of the Consent Statement I choose, OSC may disclose information from my complaint file when permitted by the Privacy Act (including circumstances summarized in Part 5, below).

Complainant's Signature for Consent Statement 2

Consent Statement 3 

I do not consent to OSC’s communication with the agency involved in my complaint. I understand that if OSC decides that it cannot investigate the allegation(s) in my complaint without communicating with that agency, my lack of consent will probably prevent OSC from taking further action on the complaint. I understand that regardless of the Consent Statement I choose, OSC may disclose information from my complaint file when permitted by the Privacy Act (including circumstances summarized in Part 5, below).

  PART 4: CERTIFICATION AND SIGNATURE


I certify that all of the statements made in this complaint (including any continuation pages) are true, complete, and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.  I understand that a false statement or concealment of a material fact is a criminal offense punishable by a fine of up to $250,000, imprisonment for up to five years, or both. 18 U.S.C. 1001.

  PART 5: PRIVACY ACT / PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT STATEMENTS


Routine Uses. Limited disclosure of information from OSC files is needed to fulfill OSC's investigative, prosecutorial, and related responsibilities. OSC has described 18 routine uses for information in its files in the Federal Register (F.R.), at 66 F.R. 36611 (July 12, 2001), and 66 F.R. 51095 (October 5, 2001). A copy of the routine uses is available from OSC upon request. A summary of the routine uses appears below.

OSC may disclose information from its files in the following circumstances: 
1. to disclose that an allegation of prohibited personnel practices or other prohibited activity has been filed;
2. to disclose information to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) as needed for inquiries involving civil service laws, rules or regulations, or to obtain an advisory opinion; 
3. to disclose information about allegations or complaints of discrimination to entities concerned with enforcement of antidiscrimination laws; 
4. to the MSPB or the President, when seeking disciplinary action; 
5. to the involved agency, MSPB, OPM, or the President when OSC has reason to believe that a prohibited personnel practice has occurred, exists, or is to be taken; 
6. to disclose information to Congress in OSC's annual report; 
7. to disclose information to third parties (without identifying the complainant unless OSC has the complainant's consent) as needed to conduct an investigation; obtain an agency investigation and report on information disclosed to OSC's whistleblower disclosure channel; or to give notice of the status or outcome of an investigation; 
8. to disclose information as needed to obtain information about hiring or retention of an employee; issuance of a security clearance; conduct of a security or suitability investigation; award of a contract; or issuance of a license, grant, or other benefit;
    

 


COMPLAINT OF POSSIBLE PROHIBITED PERSONNEL PRACTICE OR OTHER PROHIBITED ACTIVITY 
Page 11 of 12
___________________________________________________________________________________________

9. to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for certain legislative coordination and clearance purposes;
10. to provide information from an individual's record to a congressional office acting pursuant to the individual's request;
11. to furnish information to the National Archives and Records Administration for records management purposes;
12. to produce summary statistics and work force or other studies;
13. to provide information to the Department of Justice as needed for certain litigation purposes;
14. to provide information to courts or adjudicative bodies as needed for certain litigation purposes;
15. to disclose information to the MSPB as needed in special studies authorized by law;
16. for coordination with an agency's Office of Inspector General or comparable entity, to facilitate the coordination and conduct of investigations and review of allegations;
17. to news media or the public in certain circumstances (except when the Special Counsel determines that disclosure in a particular case would be an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy); and
18. to the Department of Labor and others as needed to implement the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994, and the Veterans' Employment Opportunities Act of 1998.

If OSC officials believe that disclosure may be appropriate in a situation not covered by one of OSC's routine uses, or one of the 11 other exceptions to the Privacy Act's general prohibition on disclosure, OSC will seek written authorization from the complainant permitting the disclosure.

Purposes, Burdens, and Other Information. An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and persons may not be required to respond to a collection of information, unless it: (a) has been approved by OMB, and (b) displays a currently valid OMB control number. The information in this form is collected pursuant to OSC's legal responsibility to investigate: (a) allegations of prohibited personnel practices, to the extent necessary to determine whether there are reasonable grounds to believe that a prohibited personnel practice has occurred, exists, or is to be taken (5 U.S.C. 1214); and (b) other allegations of prohibited activity (5 U.S.C. 1216). The information will be reviewed by OSC to determine whether the facts establish its jurisdiction over the subject of the complaint, and whether further investigation and corrective or disciplinary action is warranted. The reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to be an average of one hour and 15 minutes per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering the data needed, and completing and reviewing the form. Please send any comments about this burden estimate, and suggestions for reducing the burden, to the Office of Special Counsel, Legal Counsel and Policy Division, 1730 M Street, N.W. (Suite 218), Washington, DC 20036-4505. Use of this form to file a complaint alleging a prohibited personnel practice or other prohibited activity is required; use of this to file a complaint alleging only a Hatch Act violation is not required. 5 C.F.R. 1800.1(d), as amended. As stated in Part 3 of this form, complainants may request that OSC maintain their name, and information provided by them, in confidence.
