I am currently undergoing a security clearance investigation and have completed eQIP. I had an investigator call me to discuss some things on my form. One thing that she asked was if I was ever terminated for misconduct or fired from any job. I told her no–she proceeds to tell me that the serving job I listed the employer said something along the lines of misconduct and not eligible for rehire which went against what I put on my form. I told her that I part-timed at this place for 3 months 5 yrs ago and resigned and had no sort of disciplinary actions and left because I worked two jobs at the time and I was tired. To put in context, I full time as an HR Business Partner for over 7 years now so to me this didn’t make any sense and when I record terminations in the systems I’ve used, there is a drop down selection with many options to include voluntary and involuntary terminations. I am curious to know, what can I do against this former employer for “lying”? I’ve given the phone number of a former colleague to verify my claim. I know the process and definition of misconduct and an employee resigning w/o two weeks notice does not follow that definition.
