Hi, I have a question about the SF-86 where it asks if you've ever received a written warning or been disciplined for workplace misconduct. I'm currently an IT contractor and have a clearance (non-DOD). I started about 1.5 yrs ago. I recently put in application to a federal job where I work. My gov. supervisor recommended me. I was just was notified I was deemed most competitive, and have an interview scheduled.

About 9 months I received an email from my contractor concerning my excessive tardiness. (Yes, I know it was stupid of me to show up to work late. I was going through a rough time. It's since been resolved.) I haven't been late after that and since then have received positive performance reviews from my contractor and gov. supervisor.

I know I probably need to list this on my SF-86, right? But I was wondering what are the chances of being disqualified because of this? Is it worth go through the process because of this? Or should I stay in my contractor job and withdraw federal application

If it's in your records, I would answer it truthfully. It's not really that bug of an issue and it's not gonna stop you from getting the job. If you lied about it and hid it, that would be a serious issue. Knew a guy who tried that. His two previous supervisors outed him. Agency then removed from job and found it serious enough to terminate and ban him from federal government. He had few mishaps at work and hid criminal issue from his employers.

Be honest and it shouldn't be a problem. What trips most folks up is trying to hide things or credit report issues.
