The leaders of federal agencies should have a mechanism to remove an employee for poor performance or misconduct while still giving the fired worker a chance to appeal the decision. Giving agency heads the choice of the new procedure or the existing, more lengthy process is wise.
This bill is an attempt to undermine the due process rights of civil servants in the federal government who are being removed because of poor performance or misconduct. The existing process gives employees an adequate amount of time to respond to the removal decision.
