Not every employee can appeal an adverse action to the MSPB. Here is a brief list of who can make an appeal to the MSPB:
Competitive Service employees who have completed a 1-year probationary or trial period;
Veterans preference-eligible employees with at least one year of continuous employment in the same or similar positions outside the competitive service;
Postal Service supervisors, and some employees engaged in personnel work, who have completed one year of current continuous service in the same or similar positions; and
Excepted service employees, other than preference-eligibles, who are not serving a probationary or trial period and who have completed two years of current continuous service in the same or similar positions in an Executive agency
