Representing Federal Employees Facing Inspector General Investigations
Throughout the federal government, Offices of Inspector General investigate alleged wrongdoing by federal employees, such as:
- Office property theft
- Computer fraud
- Time and attendance fraud
- Illegal or improper use of the government’s resources
- Improper disclosure of contracting information to contractors
- Hiring and other personnel irregularities
