penalty for Hatch Act violation

The factors which the Board considers in determining the appropriateness of a penalty for a federal employee’s violation of the Hatch Act are: (1) The nature of the offense and the extent of the employee’s participation; (2) the employee’s motive and intent; (3) whether the employee had received advice of counsel regarding the activities at issue; (4) whether the employee had ceased the activities; (5) the employee’s past employment record; and, (6) the political coloring of the employee’s activities.
