||The IRS has a reputation for making lives miserable, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with it comes to its own employees. It seems that the IRS keeps rehiring employees that have been fired for misconduct or poor performance. I think I’ve talked to a few of them.
In response to this, Rep. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., has proposed a bill, titled the Ensuring Integrity in the IRS Workforce Act, that would prevent the IRS from rehiring these employees. She introduced this bill following a recent Treasury inspector general report that shows the IRS rehired more than 200 fired workers in a little over a year. Previous reports concluded this problem dated back to at least 2009.
