No, I am a retiree and received an email from a resolution company saying they need to conduct a phone interview affidavit with me regarding a member that is currently on active duty for her EEO complaint. "It says he is authorized to require all agency personnel to cooperate and to provide testimony. You are required by Federal Regulations and U.S. Coast Guard policy to cooperate fully and promptly with the investigator assigned to conduct the investigation."
I just would like to know my rights as far as providing a statement and testimony. Because I receive a retirement check, am I compelled to provide a statement on the phone under oath or in writing? What policy or regulation requires me to do so?
This resolution service is hired by the CG to gather statements from my understanding. How do i reply to their email request? Thank you.
