Klitzkie bill forces public sector staffers to inform agencies of convictions

Senator Bob Klitzkie (R) has introduced legislation that would require Government of Guam employees to notify their department head if they are charged with or convicted of a crime. "We've seen stories in the news in the last year where agency heads didn't know that an employee had been charged with or convicted of serious crimes and were unable to take disciplinary action because of that," he told KUAM News.

The senator says Bill 244 is needed because there is no law preventing a government employee from getting arrested over the weekend and going right back to work without the agency head ever knowing about it.
