Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations
The mission of the Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations (OLRFI) is to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in DOL programs and operations. In order to accomplish this mission, OLRFI conducts criminal investigations relating to programs, operations, and employees of the Department. In addition, unlike other Inspectors General, the DOL OIG has a unique program responsibility for investigating labor racketeering and organized crime influence or control in unions and the workplace. Specifically, OLRFI identifies and curtails labor racketeering and corruption in employee benefit plans, labor-management relations, and internal union affairs.
