VA secretary backs major legislation to fire incompetent, corrupt employees in historic move
Bizpac Review by Jonah Bennett --
In a historic move, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary David Shulkin has embraced strong legislation that would allow him to immediately terminate employees at-will.
As soon as Shulkin realized that he couldn’t terminate an employee who had been watching pornography with a patient, he issued a statement Friday urging Congress to pass accountability legislation, which is a huge move, given that former President Barack Obama stated firmly he would veto such measures if they ever passed across his desk.
“This is an example of why we need accountability legislation as soon as possible,” Shulkin said in the release. “It’s unacceptable that VA has to wait 30 days to act on a proposed removal.”
