Administrative Bodies

Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA)
The FLRA is an independent administrative federal agency that was created by Title VII of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 (also known as the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute) (the Statute). The Statute allows certain non-postal federal employees to organize, bargain collectively, and to participate through labor organizations of their choice in decisions affecting their working lives. The primary statutory responsibilities of the FLRA include resolving complaints of unfair labor practices, determining the appropriateness of units for labor organization representation, adjudicating exceptions to arbitrator’s awards, adjudicating legal issues relating to duty to bargain/negotiability, and resolving impasses during negotiations.

United States Office of Special Counsel (OSC)
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is an independent federal investigative and prosecutorial agency. The OSC’s basic authorities come from four federal statutes: the Civil Service Reform Act, the Whistleblower Protection Act, the Hatch Act, and the Uniformed Services Employment & Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). OSC’s primary mission is to safeguard the merit system by protecting federal employees and applicants from prohibited personnel practices, especially reprisal for whistleblowing.

Merit System Protection Board (MSPB)
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.
