Half of Sleeping TSA Workers Get Little Punishment: GAO

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration isn’t consistent in disciplining workers accused of misconduct, penalizing some with little evidence while not imposing minimum sanctions on others, an audit concluded.

Half of workers accused of sleeping on the job received less than the lowest penalty called for by agency policies, the Government Accountability Office said in a report released yesterday. A House Homeland Security subcommittee is holding a hearing today on how the agency disciplines employees.
