Criminal Investigative Analyst Intern (Unpaid) US Department of Labor - Office of Inspector General

Careers4Terps highlighted position, University Career Center & The President’s Promise!
Log in to your C4T account (www.Careers.umd.edu/) and paste the position title in the “Search” box to learn more and apply.


Criminal Investigative Analyst Intern (Unpaid)
US Department of Labor - Office of Inspector General

Position Type:
Summer Internship, Internship (Fall or Spring Part-Time)
Desired Major(s):
Behavioral and Social Sciences/Criminology and Criminal Justice, Public Policy
Location:
Washington, District of Columbia (United States)
Description:
Position is located in the Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations (OLRFI) at the Headquarters Office (HQ).

Intern will conduct research projects analyzing crime trends, criminal associations, or patterns using both internal agency and public source information. Will be assisting Director of Intelligence in completing projects assigned, including data queries and intelligence background checks for Secretary of Labor security details.

Organization Overview:
The Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations (OLRFI) within the DOL-OIG has the responsibility for conducting criminal investigations related to (1) programs and operations of the Department of Labor; and (2) labor racketeering. The OIG at the Department of Labor is unique among inspectors general in that it has an “external” program function to conduct criminal investigations to combat the influence of labor racketeering and organized crime in the nation’s labor unions.

Labor racketeering is the infiltration, domination, and/or use of a union or employee benefit plan for personal benefit by illegal, violent, or fraudulent means. Organized crime is defined as activities carried out by groups with a formalized structure whose primary objective is to obtain money through illegal activities. Traditionally, organized crime has been carried out by La Cosa Nostra (LCN) groups, also known as the “mob” or the “Mafia.” However, new groups are emerging and organizing. For example, organized crime groups now include Asian, Russian, Eastern European, Nigerian, and West African groups.

According to the Department of Justice, there has been a rapid rise of transnational organized crime groups that are engaging in new criminal enterprises. These nontraditional groups from Asia, Russian, Eastern Europe, and West Africa have engaged in racketeering and other crimes against workers in both union and nonunion environments. These groups are engaging in complex financial schemes, immigration fraud and exploitation of undocumented aliens, and fraud against government benefit programs. Specifically, OIG investigations have found that nontraditional organized criminal groups are exploiting the Department of Labor’s Foreign Labor Certification and Unemployment Insurance programs.

Foreign Labor Certification (FLC) investigations concentrate on fraud that facilitates the submission of falsified labor related visa applications, denies U.S. citizens opportunities for employment, deprives honest immigrants opportunities for advancement, or threatens the security of the U.S. and its citizens. OLRFI efforts have identified unscrupulous attorneys, labor brokers, employers, and their associates, some with suspected non-traditional organized crime connections, as prominent threats to the integrity of the FLC process.

Unemployment Insurance investigations focus on schemes in which stolen identities are used to file for and obtain unauthorized UI benefits, bribes or illegal payments made to UI employees to influence their decisions regarding claims, and the creation of fictitious employers through which unauthorized UI benefits are filed for and received. OIG investigations have disclosed abuse of the UI Program by non-traditional organized crime groups.

With regard to the Federal Employees' Compensation Program, the OIG investigates those who intentionally fail to disclose reportable employment or income, falsify or report fraudulent medical information, or claim to be injured or disabled when in fact they are not. As necessary, these investigations also target healthcare providers (doctors, clinics, pharmacists, physical therapists, etc.) who fraudulently bill DOL for services as well as, fraud associated with medical promotions or treatments and unauthorized payments or kickbacks made to employers, providers or claimants.
