CRA employee fired for giving preferential treatment to family and friends


A federal labour relations board has upheld the firing of a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) employee who gave preferential treatment to friends and family. Drew Woodcock, who worked for the CRA for 31 years, was fired after it was discovered he accessed personal CRA accounts 621 times without authorization. In her ruling, labour board adjudicator Nancy Rosenberg said that Woodcock accessed the accounts “in the course of providing preferential treatment to those taxpayers.” “It appears that the grievor became overly comfortable in this role and that he repeatedly disregarded some of the CRA’s most basic and important rules,” Rosenberg ruled.
