It would have been better for your agency to have terminated you however you did what you felt was necessary. You can see 40% of your base pay and the FEHB, if that year hasn't run its course yet, I'd see an attorney who handles this specialty.

On a somewhat related note, my Supervisor had 60 Gigs of Porn on his computer and even burned DVD's for fellow workers after viewings. Wrote his own Job description and was promoted from a GS 12 to a GS 14, finally removed from Office but I'm not sure it was for Porn.

I would guess DR would be denied as the actions leading to termination were not essential duties but conduct issues. And DR does not apply to conduct. Could have viewed porn on his own equipment all he wanted (in private). Same with substance addictions. No DR for being at work intoxicated (conduct) (no Rehab Act or ADA protection either if currently using).

You should have voted Cthulu...the greatest of all Evils
