I received tentatively job offer under non-competitively excepted service (schedule A authority) and background investigation was closed. I disclosed truthful information on SF-86 including termination misconduct in recent employment. Can I get a suitability If I have been fired? Is there any exception in adjudication for excepted service?
Excepted service positions are investigated and evaluated the same as all others. Recent employment misconduct that resulted in termination is a serious issue, but it depends on the misconduct as to whether it would result in an unfavorable adjudicative decision.
