Crime, Corruption & Racketeering

The Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) conducts investigations to determine if violations of the Labor-Management Relations and Disclosure Act (LMRDA) provisions have occurred.

Investigations are initiated based on various sources such as complaints from union members; information developed by OLMS as a result of reviewing reports filed; information developed during an OLMS audit of a union’s books and records; and information obtained from other government agencies. Investigations may involve civil matters (such as an election of union officers) or criminal matters (such as embezzlement of union funds).
