As an Employee Protection Specialist you will provide leadership, expertise, and direction in the development and implementation of the Employee Protection System (EPS) for the Internal Revenue Service. Work assignments include program reviews, studies and annual evaluations, assessments of training programs and working an inventory of Potentially Dangerous Taxpayer (PDT) and Caution (CAU) cases. This position involves broad analyses and studies affecting all aspects of Office of Employee Protection (OEP) operations and requires consideration of immediate, sequential and long-range effects of proposed actions.

    • Ensure that OEP policies and procedures do not negatively impact other IRS and Government policies and programs, such as the Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (RRA '98), the Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TBOR) and the Retention Standard for Fair and Equitable Treatment of Taxpayers.
