An appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (“MSPB”) may be filed at: MSPB. The MSPB has an online filing system that allows an appellant to file the entire appeal online. The MSPB, in short, is an administrative agency tasked with resolving disputes between government agencies and employees of U.S. Federal Government. As noted on the MSPB website:
The Merit Systems Protection Board is an independent, quasi-judicial agency in the Executive branch that serves as the guardian of Federal merit systems. The Board was established by Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1978, which was codified by the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 (CSRA), Public Law No. 95-454. The CSRA, which became effective January 11, 1979, replaced the Civil Service Commission with three new independent agencies: Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which manages the Federal work force; Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA), which oversees Federal labor-management relations; and, the Board.MSPB, About Us
