A former special agent in charge of the FBI's Milwaukee field office used extremely poor judgment in a disability lawsuit. That's according to the Justice Department's inspector general. It looked into the case of Justin Slaby, a service-disabled Iraq veteran who was kicked out of the FBI training academy. The IG found that Teresa Carlson improperly tried to influence the deposition of the agent responsible for training Slaby. You might call it a lesson learned the hard way. In this week's legal loop, Attorney Debra Roth tells Tom Temin on the Federal Drive how supervisors should treat employees who are being deposed.

The trial of four former U.S. security contractors in the deaths of Iraqi civilians is just getting underway. The former Blackwater employees allegedly opened fire at a busy Baghdad intersection in 2007. Now, seven years later, prosecutors are sorting out if they can be held criminally responsible. In this week's legal loop segment, employment attorney Debra Roth joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive. She explained why the case has taken so long to go to trial.

Perhaps nowhere in the federal workforce is trust more frail than in the intelligence community. It is still reeling from the revelations of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The Director of National Intelligence recently issued two policies to clamp down on employees' speech. The first says only a few authorized officials can talk with journalists. In this week's Legal Loop, Tom and Emily looked at the policy's impact on trust in the intelligence community as part of our special report, Trust Redefined: Reconnecting Government and Its Employees. Employment lawyer Debra Roth said on The Federal Drive the new policy stands out because it covers unclassified information.

How much control can agencies exert over employees' behavior when they are on work trips? And in social-work situations, what are the hard-and-fast rules that employees should follow? Two recent incidents make us ask. The Secret Service recently recalled three agents from an overseas trip after they were caught drunk. On the other hand, the Veterans Affairs Department has rehired an employee who admitted to drinking and driving on a business trip. A passenger fell out of his van and died. In this week's, Legal Loop, federal employment attorney Debra Roth discusses these thorny issues with Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
