?Question?

I am reinstatement eligible. My past position was a 9/11 FPL 11. The prospective position is a 9/12 FPL 12. HRM is saying the full performance level (FPL) of the new position is higher than my former position thus I am not eligible for referral. Can someone explain the logic behind this? Can someone point me to the OPM regulation that covers this topic? This seems like a violation of the merit promotion rule.

edit: clarification

I need to revise my information. The announcement is open to merit promotion. The announcement states reinstatement eligible's are required to have held a position with equal or greater FPL than that of current announcement. But current federal competitive employees and excepted service employees are not subject to the FPL requirement.

If it's a Merit Promotion announcement open to Reinstatement Eligibles, from what I read, you should be eligible. Here is the page from OPM's site on Reinstatement: https://www.opm.gov/poli...formation/reinstatement/
"If you are seeking a higher grade or a position with more promotion potential than you previously held, generally you must apply under a merit promotion announcement and rank among the best-qualified applicants to be selected."

Thanks Analyst

We are reading from the same book. HRM is insisting this is allowed. I searched the CFR and a candidate can notify the MSPB if there is a gross violation of OPM rules.

Obviously, this will affect all reinstatement eligibles looking for high promotion potential. I do not have experience writing complaints but I am putting one together. Hopefully, it gets accepted.
