It's so difficult to get rid of a problem employee once they're in the system that I've actually seen supervisors recommend employees be promoted to other offices just to get rid of them. Unless there is physical proof that an employee has stolen government secrets or sexually harassed a minority, it's virtually impossible to fire him or her. I was highly offended by an employee who had been turned in for harassment numerous times (by different women at different times) but with no evidence or witnesses. Guess what - he's still employeed. I've also worked along side the permant status employee with the motivation of cold honey and the efficency of a Humvee. Instead of paying their entire annual salary, why not pay me the 2 hours of overtime a week it took me to do their ALL of their duties?
