We would like to clarify…

After review of our previous posts, we would like to clarify that we never meant to state that the reason for an employee’s dismissal should necessarily be publicly released. We agree that doing so without proper cause or permission from the employee would violate the employee’s right to privacy. However, when the employee him- or her- self does not receive the reason for his or her own dismissal, we believe it is necessary to speak out. If an agency is unable to provide a reason to the employee for his or her dismissal, how can the employee be sure that the dismissal was not arbitrary or based on the personal bias of the evaluator?
