12 days of testimony needed and a 392 page report generated to fire 1 federal employee! …

A labour relations tribunal has upheld the firing of a civil servant who used his government computer to indulge his car obsession, complain about his job, store electronic music files, and attempt to cheat on staffing competitions.

In a recent decision (external - login to view), the Public Service Labour Relations Board said the government had just cause to fire Marc Gravelle, a human resources assistant in the Department of Justice, in July 2011.

Gravelle had argued that the government did not prove its case against him and that his abrupt dismissal ignored the principle of progressive discipline.

Adjudicator Renaud Paquet, however, concluded that Gravelle had severed the bond of trust that must exist between the government and one of its employees.

“As a human resources assistant, he had access to confidential documents related to competitive processes,” Paquet ruled.

“He used that privilege for his own purposes and sent confidential documents to his home address. That constitutes a lack of integrity and very serious misconduct.”

ka-ching eh

Yeah it'll be all over in only seven or eight hundred years canning the minnows.
You think firing a federal employee is hard? Try prosecuting a bank for laundering money for drug cartels.
The point I was making, sloppily, was those who have entitlement passions orders of magnitude bigger than the federal employee are the logical place to start cancelling undue entitlements. You made that point better though.
The bankers and financial cons are untouchable excepting the problems they encounter falling off buildings which is sadly too infrequent to address the public concerns I think.
