A number of Transportation Security Administrator employees who faced being firing for not following screening procedures ended up with suspensions instead. In October, TSA announced that 44 employees were facing punishments ranging from termination to suspension after they were caught on surveillance cameras not following procedures. Twenty-five of those employees were in the process of being fired. This week, the agency completed the reviews of those cases, except for one, and only four workers have been fired. “The decision to take disciplinary actions as a result of a thorough investigation reaffirms our strong commitment to hold all of our employees to the highest standards of conduct and accountability — regardless of their rank in the agency,” TSA said in a statement. “It also goes to TSA’s commitment to its due process procedures and demonstrates the agency’s dedication to treating employees in a fair and just manner.”
