Legislation Overview

Title: Rights for the TSA Workforce Act of 2022 Rights for the Transportation Security Administration Workforce Act of 2022

Subject: Government operations and politics: Administrative remedies: Aviation and airports: Cardiovascular and respiratory health: Congressional oversight: Department of Homeland Security: Emergency medical services and trauma care: Employee hiring: Employee leave: Employee performance: Employment discrimination and employee rights: Government employee pay, benefits, personnel management: Government studies and investigations: Health care costs and insurance: Health promotion and preventive care: Infectious and parasitic diseases: Internet and video services: Labor-management relations: Law enforcement officers: Mental health: Telephone and wireless communication: Transportation employees: Transportation safety and security: Veterans' education, employment, rehabilitation: Worker safety and health: Internet, web applications, social media

Description: Modifies the workplace rights, protections, and benefits applicable to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel. Specifically, the bill by December 31, 2022, eliminates personnel authorities of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Transportation governing the conditions of employment for TSA employees, thus making TSA employees subject to the personnel management system applicable to other federal employees; sets forth transition rules that protect the pay rates, leave rights, and other rights of TSA employees; and requires DHS to consult with the exclusive representative of TSA screening employees to carry out the conversion of those positions. The bill also permits the TSA to consult with organizations representing federal air marshals to address concerns, including mental health and suicide rates; directs the TSA to ensure its employees are provided proper guidance regarding prevention and protections against COVID-19; requires the TSA to provide a one-time bonus payment of $3,000 to each TSA employee carrying out duties that require substantial contact with the public during the COVID-19 national emergency; and requires the Government Accountability Office to report on implementation of the bill, TSA recruitment efforts, and specified TSA personnel policies.
