I'm currently a DOI employee and applied for another job within DOI that's listed as a high risk position that doesn't require a security clearance. The trust determination process lists credentialing and suitability/fitness. I recently received a 2 day suspension for sexual misconduct after I reported sexual harassment. How likely is it I would be found unsuitable if selected for the position?

(second try... see if it takes this time)

None of us can say for sure but if that was the only such occurence and not part of a larger pattern, it shouldn't stop you. Be prepared to answer a lot of questions and provide details, and maybe wait longer than usual, but this one incident in and of itself would not be grounds for denial.

Of course there are two sides to every story and you may need to respond to allegations which were previously unknown to you... that sort of thing has been reported.

Thanks for the input! That's the only derogatory thing I have on any work record and I have zero criminal history. If it does come up, I just hope I have an opportunity to explain the situation.
