Termination of Non-Performing Federal Employees

ENCOURAGE PERFORMANCE OF FEDERAL EMPLOYEES

 

Actively eliminate the perceived inability to terminate a Federal Employee for non-performance of their duties as determined by their managers, and develop a system that is both equitable and encourages high performance from employees in the GS system. The main cause of complacency in the Federal Workforce is the fact that Federal Employees know it is nearly impossible to terminate them, so there is no incentive to do more than the bare minimum. This idea proposes that terminations for poor performers begin immediately.

 

If an employee is consistently not performing or unable to perform the duties of the position, they should be immediately downgraded to a lower-graded position. If their attitude or work ethic is unacceptable, they should be removed from the Federal Service.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
