Associate Special Counsel

​Anne Wagner is an Associate Special Counsel at the Office of Special Counsel. Prior to coming to OSC, Ms. Wagner was the Vice Chairman of the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), the quasi-judicial agency in the executive branch that resolves personnel disputes within the federal civil service system. Ms. Wagner was instrumental in making MSPB's processes more transparent and accountable, in particular, by explaining the bases for Board opinions in non-precedential decisions. Along with her colleagues, she also presided over the first oral arguments before the Board in 30 years. 

Before her term at the MSPB, Ms. Wagner served as Chair, Vice Chair, Member, and General Counsel for the Government Accountability Office's Personnel Appeals Board. She also spent nearly 20 years working as an Assistant General Counsel for the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents hundreds of thousands of federal employees. During this time, she led precedent setting litigation challenging policies and practices that violated the rights of federal employees and handled cases arising under the full array of laws governing federal employment. Her federal career began as an attorney focusing on employment law for the General Service Administration's Office of General Counsel. 

Ms. Wagner received her bachelor's degree from the University of Notre Dame and her law degree from the George Washington University School of Law.​
