Congress is on the verge of stripping due process rights from every non-management Veterans Affairs (VA) employee – including whistleblowers and the over 100,000 veterans employed by the VA.
Supporters of the dubiously-named “VA Accountability Act” (H.R. 1994) claim that the VA is unable to eliminate poor performers. In fact, the VA fired 2,247 employees for disciplinary or performance reasons in FY 2013 alone, more than any other cabinet-level agency, according to the Office of Personnel Management.
The House will hold a floor vote on the VA at-will employment bill on Wednesday, July 29.
TAKE ACTION: Tell your Representative to vote NO on H.R. 1994
H.R. 1994 would have a crippling effect on employee morale – resulting in higher turnover of employees and worsening the standards of care for the brave men and women who served our country, and all at a far greater cost to the American taxpayer.
