Let me try and make this an easy read yet give all the facts. Had a DoD TS-SCI in 2007 (Army Reserves). Went down to Secret because I no longer needed it after the 5 years. I’m still in the Army Reserves (they aren’t doing an investigation and just waiting on DoE and then go off theirs). September 2017 I am promoted at my civilian job which required a TS-SCI again, this time DoJ. Just as it was completing and I was about to be read on, March 2018 I am suspended from work for sleeping with a subordinate and after I no longer wanted to continue the relationship she told the management. June 2018 I am given an intent to terminate letter (yes I was suspended 90 days with pay while they figured it out). The termination was for not providing a harmonious work environment. While sitting in my attorney’s office I get a call for a new job offer, which I accept and my employer lets me resign in lieu of termination. The DoJ clearance was administratively removed. The new job requires a DoE Q and I am currently going through the process, which seems to be dragging on. The ONLY bad things to report in my entire life are:
Art 15 in 1992 for theft (stole a cassette tape from the PX)
Internal Affairs 2014 for releasing information to another law enforcement agency about an investigation, unfounded and cleared
Intent to terminate from above issue June 2018
Speeding ticket August 2018 which was $380
All four issues were discussed during my Q interview and I was able to explain them. My concern is the recent intent to terminate and even the 2014 IA investigation. DoJ didn’t care about the IA but the DoE Q investigator hit on it a bit because it was a “release of information”. I explained the issue and that it was unfounded and I was cleared. More though, I am concerned about the recent event. I have never been terminated from a job in all my life and it was an eye opener. My military career has been completely squeaky clean since the 1992 event and I am still in 26 years later and a Command Sergeant Major.
Is this intent to terminate going to hang me up? An interim clearance was requested for me but it has not been approved and I was put on an expedited list but it has now been 6 months. The investigator interviewed me in September and she just contacted my Army Reserve unit last week.
