IRS Managers and Employees Admin Exposures

The FEDS PLI policy pays for legal defense up to $200,000 for any disciplinary or judicial sanction proceeding or administrative investigations into alleged misconduct from any act, error, or omission committed by a federal employee while rendering a professional service.

This includes any TIGTA, OSC, EEO or Congressional investigations - or any management directed investigation that could result in an action against you. Common allegations of wrongdoing against IRS employees and managers resulting in these investigations include - but are not limited to - the following:

  • a No Fear Act investigation;
  • a UNAX allegation;
  • a 1203 or 1204 investigation;
  • an unauthorized 6104 disclosure;
  • a TIGTA or OSC investigation/complaint;
  • an EEO, whistleblower or ethics complaint;
  • a complaint or allegation of wrongdoing made by the public; or
  • any other allegation of wrongdoing involving the performance of your official duties.

The FEDS policy also provides coverage for managers facing harassment, discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination allegations.  FEDS does not charge additional premium or require you to purchase additional endorsements for Employment Practices Liability Protection. 

Many long time federal employees never thought they would face an administrative investigation/disciplinary action and certainly never thought they would need to secure personal counsel. Whether the complaint comes from a politically motivated elected official, criminal defendant, subordinate employee or other employee, or a member of the public—the thought that an investigation requiring legal counsel could never happen to you is naïve.

Read the real world scenarios as well as the endorsements and testimonials from attorneys who defend federal employees and the professional associations who represent your interests.

Obtaining personal counsel for administrative matters can be costly. For instance, it can easily cost $10,000 to $25,000 to defend you in a TIGTA, OSC, EEO, Congressional or agency investigation. To take your case through the MSPB or if you are the subject of a disciplinary action, representation can cost at least $30,000 to $70,000.
