Special Report - ICE Should Document Its Process for Adjudicating Disciplinary Matters Involving Senior Executive Service Employees [open pdf - 917KB]
From the Document: "We conducted a review of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) policies and procedures regarding Senior Executive Service (SES) employee discipline. We undertook this review after receiving an allegation that a former ICE SES official received favorable treatment during disciplinary proceedings. [...] We found that ICE does not follow its written policy when conducting disciplinary reviews of SES employees. This practice risks creating an appearance that SES employees receive more favorable treatment than non-SES employees."
