More than 1000 CRA employees under fire for failure to protect taxpayer information

The Canada Revenue Agency has disciplined more than 1,000 employees for professional misconduct over the past four years — on average one case every working day.

According to numbers obtained by CBC News, some tabled in Parliament and others provided by the agency, there were 550 cases of misconduct between April 1, 2016 and March 27, 2018. There were another 521 cases between April 2014 and March 2016 for a total of 1,071.

A breakdown of the cases between 2016 and 2018 reveals that failure to protect the agency’s — and taxpayers’ — information was the top reason employees were suspended, reprimanded or even fired. That accounted for 222 incidents or 40 per cent of misconduct identified by the agency.

The second most common offence fell into the category of “failure to protect CRA’s reputation.” That can include anything from being in a conflict of interest or committing a crime to tweeting out the wrong thing or yelling at a taxpayer, according to the agency’s code of integrity and professional conduct.

  4. I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this problem plus it does indeed supply me personally
    some fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, through everything that
    I have witnessed, I simply hope as the actual feedback pack on that
    individuals continue to be on issue and don’t get started on a soap box associated with the news of the day.
    Still, thank you for this fantastic piece and while I can not necessarily agree with
    the idea in totality, I respect your perspective.
