article imageEPA tells employees to stop pooping in the hallway

Denver - Like all major organizations, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) faces a number of challenges that it must overcome. The latest challenge is one in which no amount of schooling could have prepared them — employees pooping in the hallway.
The Government Executive reports that EPA Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor of the EPA's Region 8 offices in Denver, Colorado complained in an e-mail about "several instances" of employees clogging up the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway.”
Management in the Denver offices sent out a memo asking employees to cease and desist any and all hallway pooping activities and also requested that any employees who have information leading to the identity of this mysterious stealth pooper should report those details immediately.
“Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals,” read Cantor's e-mail.
To prove that management was taking the situation seriously, they even went as far as hiring Dr. John Nicoletti, an expert in workplace violence, to investigate the situation.
Dr. Nicoletti considered the situation "very dangerous" in that it posed as serious health risk and recommended that action be taken immediately to prevent it from escalating.
“EPA cannot comment on ongoing personnel matters,” EPA spokesman Richard Mylott said. “Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects our commitment to securing a safe workplace.”
Though this would be an EPA first for employees dropping a deuce in the hallway, it is certainly not the first run-in the organization has had with employee misconduct.
One employee was recently found to have defrauded the organization for over $900,000 by never showing up to work under the false claim that he was an undercover CIA agent.
In another case, an employee was caught after downloading over 7,000 files of porn on his work computer and found to have spent two to six hours a day watching it.
