Last revision: April 10, 1992 §1614.502 Compliance with final Commission decisions. (a) Relief ordered in a final decision on appeal to the Commission is mandatory and binding on the agency except as provided in 1614.405(b). Failure to implement ordered relief shall be subject to judicial enforcement as specified in 1614.503(g). (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of this section, when the agency requests reconsideration, when the case involves removal, separation, or suspension continuing beyond the date of the request for reconsideration, and when the decision recommends retroactive restoration, the agency shall comply with the decision only to the extent of the temporary or conditional restoration of the employee to duty status in the position recommended by the Commission, pending the outcome of the agency request for reconsideration. (1) Service under the temporary or conditional restoration provisions of this paragraph (b) shall be credited toward the completion of a probationary or trial period, eligibility for a within-grade increase, or the completion of the service requirement for career tenure, if the Commission upholds its decision after reconsideration. (2) The agency shall notify the Commission and the employee in writing, at the same time it requests reconsideration, that the relief it provides is temporary or conditional. (c) When no request for reconsideration is filed or when a request for reconsideration is denied, the agency shall provide the relief ordered and there is no further right to delay implementation of the ordered relief. The relief shall be provided in full not later than 60 days after receipt of the final decision unless otherwise ordered in the decision.
