VA TO MAKE ALL DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS PUBLIC - July 10, 2017
VA Becomes the First Federal Agency to Publicly Post All Major Disciplinary Actions
By Eric Katz, Government Executive
The Veterans Affairs Department has begun publicly posting all major disciplinary actions taken against its employees, saying the action will send a message about the new culture the Trump administration is imposing at the agency.
The postings are the first of its kind in the federal government, VA Secretary David Shulkin said Friday. Shulkin has championed reforms aimed at hastening the disciplinary process throughout his tenure and the announcement comes just weeks after President Trump signed a law with bipartisan backing to ease the firing and suspensions of VA employees.
