I. Statement of the Case
The Administrative Law Judge issued the attached decision in the above-entitled proceeding finding that the Respondent did not violate section 7116(a)(1) and (2) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) because the Respondent did not, as alleged, issue a two-day suspension to an employee because he filed grievances and used official time.
