LAW AND ETHICS OF HIRING A DIVERSE WORKFORCE 15 Annual Training Both military and civilian employees must complete annual training each year. This training consists of awareness training, human trafficking training, information assurance training, personally identifiable information training (PII), and security training based on the position. This training ensures employees are protecting themselves for identity theft and any other types of positions that would cause them to be put into a position to be bribed to release governmental information. Leadership Training A new type of training being implemented within the Marine Corps is civilian leadership training. In the past employees were expected to gain leadership traits through observation of their supervisors or through additional education. However, the goal is now to grow leaders from within the agency purposefully and with calculated initiatives. Recruiting and Training Recommendations More Civilian Job Training Upon beginning employment with the United States Marine Corps civilian employees receive some initial training, however, once completed civilian employees receive minimal additional job training. Civilian employees do receive annual training each year, but this training teaches on antiterrorism awareness, prevention of personally identifiable information release, and other training the keeps the employee from releasing governmentally damaging information. This training does little to improve the employee’s job specific skill level. Annual job training ensures employees are gaining skills they can use to better perform their jobs.

LAW AND ETHICS OF HIRING A DIVERSE WORKFORCE 16 While the Navy Human Resources Hiring Process has improved there are still back door methods that can be used to hiring unqualified workers to certain positions.

While on the other hand if the hiring process is not transparent, then you leave the door open for unethical practices. Laws Affecting the Agency Acfalle v. United States In this case Navy Civilian employees at Guam filed a lawsuit against the United States. These employees worked, per their employee ratings, as stevedores more than 50 percent of the time and as laborers the rest of the time. They were subsequently paid as stevedores when they worked in that capacity and laborers when they worked in that capacity. These workers petitioned the courts to be paid as stevedores the entire time. The court, in the end, affirmed the prior court’s ruling that these employees must appeal the decision with the agency before taking outside action. This case strengthened and affirmed the Navy Hiring and rating process
