VA Attorneys Can’t Fire Or Punish VA Executives Correctly – The Case Of ‘Dirty D’ And Other Agency Misfits

Popular

The recent examples of VA rehiring fired executives or reversing on reasonable punishments for fraudulent behavior reveals ineptness of VA attorneys.

Failures to follow reasonable due process standards show the agency is creating a mockery of accountability reforms implemented by President Donald Trump to improve standards and performance of VA employees.

Further failures to train and advise VA executives in how to document and execute termination protocols also indicate deficiencies that likely go to the core of why VA accountability could elude the agency for years to come.
