Issues: (1) Whether the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act specifically provides authority to the Merit Systems Protection Board to inquire as to the existence of a discriminatory pretext in the revocation of an employee's security clearance; (2) whether, where the employee alleges the revocation of the security clearance is for a discriminatory pretext, the inquiry as to the existence of this discriminatory pretext improperly intrudes upon the “merits” of the Executive's security clearance determination; and (3) whether the Merit Systems Protection Board can then provide a remedy under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act to an employee whose security clearance was revoked in violation of the Act.
