EPA ATTEMPTING 1,200 BUYOUTS AND EARLY EXITS FROM EMPLOYEES - June 21, 2017
EPA Wants 1,200 Employees to Accept Buy Outs, Early Outs
By Eric Katz, Government Executive
The Environmental Protection Agency will attempt to persuade more than 1,200 employees to leave their jobs through separation incentives, according to an internal memorandum.
EPA has not formally sent the early retirement and buyout offers to employees, according to the memo obtained by Government Executive, but it plans to begin the process shortly. The agency has sent its requests for buyouts and early outs to the Office of Personnel Management and the Office of Management and Budget for approval.
