Greetings, I am looking for information on getting reinstated to the USPS.

Here is the problem; I worked for the USPS for 12 years as a mail clerk from 1979 to 1991.

I had a run-in with a Postal Inspector in a sting operation, they placed me on off duty status with pay, but management said if I resigned they would not charge me with anything.

I should have found a good attorney but I didn’t, anyway that is water under the bridge.
The Postal Inspectors went ahead and charged me after I resigned; I ended up with a misdemeanor charge and a $100 fine (there… I feel better talking about it).

My PS Form 50 has under Nature of Personnel Action: Code 317,
Description: Resignation All Other.

What are my realistic chances of getting rehired by the USPS or any other Fed department?

I would like to have a chance at retirement, I took out my CSRS retirement money but I can pay it back.

If I cannot get rehired that’s OK too.

Thanks for listening.

CVC

You can't get hired if you have any blemish on your driving record for the last two years. Having a "run-in" with the Postal Inspectors has got to be a deal breaker.

This was a sting operation, drugs? there are
other codes put in your form 50 even thou
you resigned and if you ask for reinstatement
they will send for your OPF and there will be
information there as to the sting. Having
a record alone is not enough to deny you
being reinstated but in drug issues even if
you have become a very clean, worthy citizen
they will have to go to Area for approval and
they can ask for all sorts of info specially if
it concerns drugs. In addition you will have
to take the new test 473 before they can reinstate you. You will have to disclose this
on the 2591 Application for Employment and
then explain what happened? Long process and
not one that is easy and as you do not
explain as to what the sting was about, I am
assuming it was some drug sting! and by the
way I am sure the Inspection Service has your
name in their computers.

and by the way it is in the rules that the PO's
policy is to refuse employment to persons who were removed outside the probationary period,from
the PO or other Federal Agency for cause or who resigned after being notified that charges pending removal, would be or had been issued
and like stated it requires the Area Manager's
Human Resources approval if selected for employment.

There were no drugs involved and there were no charges pending when I resigned.
I was told in writing that if I resigned no charges would be filed..they lied.

They only thing in my OPM file that is negative is a letter stating the PO was putting me on leave with pay pending investigation.

I know it would be a long shot.

Is there any other code on my Form 50 that would give more info on reinstatement?

I'm not sure why I even want back in.
Maybe it's like getting back on a horse after you've been bucked off.

Too late to make an issue of lying and you still
do not explain what this sting was about. The
codes in the form 50 are those in the remarks
section and the facts that you are aware that there is a letter or some kind of documentation
in your OPF that stated that there was an investigation going on when you resigned is
sufficient for them to start digging further and
by the way the Postal Service does not have any
control if the OIG or the Inspection Services
file any charges with the Courts, the fact that
they reduced it to a misdemeanor and a fine sounds to me that there was some credibiity to
the charges. No there is nothing in your
Form 50 giving you any information about
reinstatement, you can always call whomever is
left in the Personnel Office in your District
and ask what you need to do to be reinstated
and go from there and remember in the Post
Office when you are promised something, GET IT
IN WRITING!

If it was mail theft you have no chance. Especially since that is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and it's a felony. Getting a misdo would be very lucky.
