The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) on Tuesday announced that a total of 28 erring employees have either been removed or suspended since last year.
According to the BIR, the reasons for the dismissal vary from grave misconduct, serious dishonesty, frequent unauthorized absences, falsification of official documents, gross neglect of duty, insubordination, and absence without official leave.
Twenty-six employees were removed while two were suspended.
“Keep in mind that you have no business working for the BIR if you fail to meet our standards for integrity and professionalism,” BIR Commissioner Romeo “Jun” Lumagui Jr. said in a statement.
According to the BIR, Lumagui is mulling over having a regular investigation of BIR officials.
“We are committed to provide a new BIR to the public. One that has integrity and professionalism,” he said. —KG, GMA Integrated News
