Seasonal employees get competitive status

On August 7, President Obama signed H.R. 1531, the Land Management Workforce Flexibility Act, which allows seasonal temporary employees in federal land management agencies to compete for vacant permanent positions under internal merit promotion procedures.

The bill will also waive age requirements that currently prevent well-qualified temporary seasonal firefighters from competing for permanent positions.

The National Federation of Federal Employees, which has championed the legislation, applauded the new law.

ANPR is pleased to have supported this bill as well.
