Federal employees at all agencies are feeling the heat as one OIG investigation after another commences. Many are politically divisive with career federal employees primed for getting caught in the wide net of agency OIG investigations and facing consequences driven by demands for accountability, such as:
HHS OIG on Vaccine Research Funds
DOJ OIG on Attempts to Overturn Election
DOJ, DHS, Interior, Defense on Jan. 6 Riot
We’ve been defending federal employees for a long time and here’s what we know for sure:
- Some good deeds will absolutely result in punishment – no matter how logical, necessary, effective or brilliant they seemed at the time of crises.
- There is a plethora of problems, obstacles, accusations, and allegations that have not yet surfaced as a result of everything ‘gone wrong’ in 2020 and early 2021, but they will.
- The unseen, unintended consequences of federal employee decisions and actions will continue to embroil some federal employees in the complexities of investigations and personal capacity lawsuits.
