house Bill H.R. 1038

Should VA Employee’s Misconduct Stay on Their Permanent Records?

Argument in favor

This bill would ensure that the misconducts made by VA employees are not forgotten. After recent controversies, it’s important that mistakes made by employees of the agency be well-documented.

This bill reduces the potential corruption in public sphere. I am in favor of that.

Misconducts stay with employees in private corporation and business, why should the VA be any different?

This should be so for all Federal agency senior executives.

Argument opposed

The VA is certainly in need of more oversight. But reprimands and admonishments are given for stuff like showing up late. The real problem of the VA is in its structure and leadership, not just some guy or gal showing up late a few too many times.

There's no need for these to be permanent records. 3-4 years is sufficient, as it allows for enough time to see a pattern if needed but not enough to permanently punish someone for a minor infraction.

This would surely lead to under-reporting of any misdeeds.

There should be a statute of limitations so that minor misconducts are expunged from the records after some period of time, e.g. 3 years after tardiness has resulted in a warning.
