It's been mentioned at my hospital that the VA will begin fingerprinting all employees, physicians, students, volunteers, etc. in the near future. The closest link that I've found for this is here: http://www.house.gov/va/hearings/schedule108/mar04/3-31-04/fmurphy.html and here: http://veterans.house.gov/hearings/schedule109/jun06/6-15-06/GAO_testimony.pdf So far I haven't heard anything definite yet but this is one of those "will happen" events coming down from the administrative levels. Anyone here work in a VA where they've begun to do fingerprint screening? What happens if you refuse the screening? Have people worked out arrangements for their jobs if they declined to be fingerprinted?
