Chairman Miller Statement on VA’s Inability to Discipline Yet Another Misbehaving Employee

2016/02/08

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today Chairman Miller released the below statement regarding the recent Merit Systems Protection Board decision to overturn the removal of former Albany Stratton VA Medical Center Director Linda Weiss. The decision marked the third time in less than two weeks the MSPB has prevented VA from disciplining a misbehaving employee.

                          

"This is yet another MSPB ruling that defies common sense. It will likely force VA to create a do-nothing job for an employee it has no confidence in. But it is encouraging that VA Deputy Secretary Sloan Gibson is finally starting to realize what nearly every‎ objective observer concluded long ago: the MSPB coddles and protects misbehaving employees rather than facilitating fair and efficient discipline. And as long as we have a system in place that requires a similar standard to discipline federal workers as it does to send criminals to prison, accountability problems at VA and across the government will only continue.  Now is the time for Gibson to work with Congress to reform the federal government's dysfunctional civil service system -- something he was refusing to do as recently as last week. For the sake of the many dedicated federal employees who are being forced to work side by side with MSPB-protected dead wood, I hope he decides to join us in reforming this broken system." - Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans' Affairs
