By Forbes,July 28, 2017
As an employer, would you rehire a former employee guilty of misconduct? Say, someone you caught falsifying official forms, peeking at secured confidential files, or misusing company property? It is hard to see how.Most employers breathe a sigh of relief when such an employee departs. You don't hire them back. How about rehiring hundreds of such misbehaving workers? Rehiring is for someone you want back, not someone who was a problem. But the IRS may be different from your average employer. The IRS continues to rehire former employees with conduct and performance issues, according to a newly released report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
