ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Attorney's Office are now investigating CareerSource centers in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.
The company is accused of drastically inflating employment numbers.
Former CEO Edward Peachey was ousted after the allegations surfaced.
Jack Geller, board chairman of CareerSource Pinellas, said Friday he was notified by an attorney this week about the latest development.
He said he welcomes the investigation and said the company will be "fully cooperative."
He also said the interview process to replace Peachey will begin in about two weeks.
Back in April, the vice chair of CareerSource Pinellas said restoring trust in the organization was a priority.
"Trust in the organization is zero at this point," said Patricia Gerard. "We have a public trust to carry out."
