Bookmark and Share

Ask the Lawyer received the following question (paraphrased for easier reading and clarity) from a reader on a legal matter that might be of interest to the entire audience.

Q:

I believe I am being harassed by an Inspector General and I am not sure how to fight this. I am a Commissioner on a Federal Commission. My non-profit is not in the position to take on the federal government and I have been reminded by many that this IG’s actions could be a career buster for me. What should I do?

A:

In your position, you have an obligation to cooperate with an Inspector General. There is no way to fight it, but being prepared and truthful in responses are good starting places.
