The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is taking a further step on transparency and accountability as a follow-on to the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act signed by the president less than two weeks ago. The department is making public a list of adverse employee actions taken since Jan. 20. This information is posted on the VA Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection website, and will be updated weekly. For privacy reasons, the adverse action list will not include employee names, but will give information on the position, VA region or administration and type of adverse or disciplinary action taken.
