About Disclosures

Jurisdictional Requirements

The Disclosure Unit has jurisdiction over federal employees, former federal employees, and applicants for federal employment. It is important to note that a disclosure must be related to an event that occurred in connection with the performance of an employee's duties and responsibilities. The Disclosure Unit does not have jurisdiction over disclosures filed by:

  • employees of the U.S. Postal Service and the Postal Regulatory Commission;
  • members of the armed forces of the United States (i.e., non-civilian military employees);
  • state employees operating under federal grants;
  • employees of federal contractors; and
  • other employees or federal agencies that are exempt under federal law.
