Bringing the best new people on board and weeding out the worst are both the most important and the most difficult tasks faced by any employer. For federal managers, the challenge is even greater. Not only does government bureaucracy often make hiring a cumbersome, slow-moving process, but poor performers enjoy more protection from losing their jobs than their counterparts outside of government. The Complete Guide to Hiring and Firing Government Employees is filled with tried-and-true strategies that will enable government man agers to cut through the red tape and take advantage of the best talent avail able, as well as efficiently document and deal with those who don't make the cut.

He also provides a roadmap and reference tool to the potential pitfalls that experienced and inexperienced federal managers face daily....Not another door stop or dust gatherer. 4 out 4 of stars if used earnestly by federal mangers and supervisors." --Oh My Gov!
"Liff's new book tosses aside the typical esoteric discourse on civil service reform and hunkers down into the weeds of current law to help managers figure out how to hire the best workers and get rid of the worst now -- not in some utopian, imaginary world of the future." --Government Executive
