I lost a contractor job in 2018 because the agency almost totally ignored regulations and made an arbitrary determination. The reasons they used were that I was let go from a temp call center job in 2016 because I fell 5% short of the metric, that I lost a 2013 job because of poor performance (totally ignoring the explanation that my supervisor made the job impossible) and a 2012 temp job for poor performance (again, ignoring details that I was forced to complete an impossible number of calls per day.) None of those have any connection to 5CFR 302.203 or other regulation on suitability or clearances.
The current Agency wants to call it a denial even though I have documents that clearly state “this is not a denial.” They also brought up my job losses despite repeated explanations, documents and even great letters of reference about my character and work ethic.
Can they deny a clearance for those reasons even though there was no misconduct or negligence in those jobs, and it was clearly NOT a denial in 2018?
