Yep. One of the very few sure-fire ways to get summarily fired from State or Federal civil service is fraud.

Everything else takes months of documentation and forms, sometimes even ALJ hearings to get someone out.

There was a horrible employee at Caltrans, always out, just a slow, scabby decline into obvious crank addiction. Treatment and counseling were offered, every attempt was made to assist her... until one day a call was made to Kaiser to confirm dates on a doctors note she provided proved that she turned a Zero into an 8 to get some extra days out. Fraud, bye-bye Speedy.
