OIG Hotline

The purpose of the OIG Hotline is to receive complaints of fraud, waste, or abuse in FLRA's programs and operations, including mismanagement or violations of law, rules, or regulations by employees. 

What should you report?

File a report if you witness or have knowledge of any of the following:

  • Violations of Laws and Regulations Relating to FLRA Programs and Operations
  • Criminal Activity, such as:  Bribery, Smuggling, Theft, and Fraud
  • Mismanagement / Waste of Funds
  • Workplace Violence
  • Employee Misconduct
  • Conflict of Interest

Confidentiality Information

The complainant may remain confidential (i.e., known only to the FLRA OIG), allow their name to be used (i.e., included in any investigation that may take place), or anonymous (i.e., unknown even to the FLRA OIG).  If the complainant chooses to remain anonymous, FLRA OIG cannot obtain additional information on the allegation (e.g., testimonial or documentary evidence; identity of witnesses), and also cannot inform the complainant as to what action FLRA OIG has taken on the complaint.  Confidential status allows further communication between FLRA OIG and the complainant after the original complaint is received.

The identity of complainants is protected under the provisions of the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 (PDF) and the Inspector General Act of 1978 (PDF).

Ways to Submit Your Complaint

You have the option of submitting your complaint(s) via telephone, U.S. mail, internet, or email.  For information on these different submission methods, see the OIG Contact Page.

Please read the Confidentiality Information statement above before proceeding with your complaint.
