CBP Automotive Mechanic Leader Removal Reduced to a Suspension
A Laredo Sector CBP Automotive Mechanic Leader was proposed to be removed from Federal Service for events surrounding an allegation of misusing a supervisor’s signature on certain forms. Specifically, the employee was proposed for removal based on the following two charges:
1. Improper Use of Signature of Another on an Official Form; and
2. Lack of Candor.
Mr. Garcia successfully presented a factual and legal argument that lead to the Lack of Candor charge being dropped, and mitigating the proposed removal to a five (5) day suspension. The employee kept his career and was placed back on the job.
