Kitsap County Security Clearance Revocation Lawyers

What Happens if You Lose Your Security Clearance?

The U.S. government takes the nation's security very seriously. Any breach could put the safety of the country's citizens at risk. As such, some government, federal contractor, and private positions that have access to sensitive information or restricted areas may be required to obtain and maintain security clearance. The process for getting and keeping clearance is complex and has become even more intricate as concerns about the nation's safety have increased in recent years. Those whose jobs require security clearance may face much more scrutiny when going through the renewal process.

If your security clearance was revoked, you might be at risk of losing your job. However, you have the opportunity to appeal the decision. At Glisson & Morris, our attorneys have nearly 5 decades of legal experience, and we have helped individuals facing clearance revocation present their case at a hearing and demonstrate their trustworthiness. We know the complexities of the system, and we are ready to provide sound legal guidance and stand up for you throughout the process.

Why was Your Security Clearance Revoked?

There are many reasons why your security clearance can be revoked but some of the most common are personal conduct, drug involvement and security violations:

  • Personal Conduct - If you license is revoked due to personal conduct issues than you were demonstrating “conduct involving questionable judgment, untrustworthiness, unreliability, lack of candor, dishonesty, or unwillingness to comply with rules and regulations could indicate that the person may not properly safeguard classified information.”
  • Drug Involvement - If you license is revoked due to drug involvement than you may have shown a history of involvement with illegal drugs such as marijuana or even abuse of legal prescription drugs
  • Security Violations - If you have a history of security violations than your clearance may be revoked because the government has raised doubts about your trust worthiness and ability to secure classified information.

Appealing a Security Clearance Revocation

The initial process for obtaining security clearance involves filling out a Standard Form 86 Questionnaire for National Security Positions (SF-86) or Electronic Questionnaires for Investigation Processing (e-QIP). You must be honest and accurate when completing these forms, as any mistakes could affect the reviewing agency's final decision.

When you initially apply for security clearance or are going through the renewal process, the government will conduct a thorough background check.
