New Jersey Investigations of Federal Employees in New Jersey Lawyers

By Spodek Law Group | May 23, 2023
(Last Updated On: May 23, 2023)

Protect Yourself During a Federal Employee Investigation

The moment a federal employee discovers that they are under investigation by the Inspector General Office can be profoundly alarming. Often, these investigations arise from complaints lodged by fellow federal employees or supervisors, alleging misconduct. To safeguard your career and reputation, it is crucial to consult a knowledgeable federal employment lawyer who can provide the guidance and representation necessary to navigate this complex process.

Common Investigations Involving Federal Employees

There are numerous reasons for federal employee investigations, some of which include:

  • Insubordination
  • Negligence
  • Falsification of documents
  • Security violations
  • Lack of Honesty
  • Prohibited practices
  • Theft or misuse of government property, computers, or emails
  • Workplace violence
  • Misuse of a Government Owned Vehicle
  • Misuse of funds
  • Off-duty crime and alcoholism
  • Absence from duty without leave

The Intricate Nature of Federal Employee Investigations

Once accused of misconduct, federal employees may find themselves the subject of an investigation that could lead to disciplinary or adverse actions. Investigative personnel may include agents from the Office of the Inspector General, supervisors, human resource department representatives, agency investigators, or contracted investigators.

As a federal employee under investigation, it is essential to understand your rights. Be sure to seek the assistance of experienced legal counsel to determine the optimal course of action and learn what to expect during this process.

Protection of Your Rights during an Investigation

During the investigatory process, federal employees enjoy several rights and protections. The investigating agency must inform the employee of these rights, ensuring full compliance with due process protocols.

If criminal allegations are present, the agency must provide the accused with Miranda warnings, which protect their rights under the Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the Constitution. Under these circumstances, the best course of action is to remain silent and request the presence of your attorney.

In cases involving administrative misconduct, investigating agents should provide Garrity or Kalkines warnings. Regardless of which warning applies, your attorney must be present throughout the entire process to ensure the best outcome for your career and personal well-being.

Access to Documents

Under the Inspector General Act’s Section 6, the IG has the authority to obtain various documents related to the investigation. Additionally, the IG may issue subpoenas or access financial records under the Right to Financial Privacy Act. These investigative powers can be exerting, further emphasizing the need for competent legal representation.

Understanding the Investigation Process

The objective of the investigation is to determine the veracity of the alleged misconduct and collect any relevant evidence to substantiate or disprove the claims against the employee. As an accused federal employee, it’s essential to grasp the investigatory process’ layout to protect yourself and your livelihood adequately.

During the investigation, agents may examine vouchers, memoranda, contracts, and other documents. They may also interview witnesses, subjects, and technical experts to obtain essential information to validate or refute the allegations.

Once all evidence has been gathered, federal agents will compile a report and present it either to the Department of Justice (for criminal wrongdoings) or the appropriate FCC manager (for administrative offenses). In either situation, skilled legal representation is paramount for protecting the rights of the accused federal employee.

As federal investigations can have severe consequences for both your career and personal life, the importance of having dedicated legal representation cannot be overstated. Choosing a knowledgeable and experienced attorney from the Spodek Law Group can make the difference in saving your career and avoiding unjust punishment.

From the investigation’s beginning to its conclusion, a skilled lawyer will be by your side, ensuring that federal agents adhere to standard protocols and safeguarding your rights. By choosing to work with a steadfast and committed legal advocate, you can preserve your reputation and your livelihood during your federal employee investigation.
