A recruiter at a recruiting company in Florida who says he was fired over his recruitment of Muslim students has raised concerns about the position.
Federal agents interviewed the recruiter for the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in June, but he did not want to comment on the investigation, a law enforcement official told TIME.
He said he had not been informed of the probe, the official said.JTNF has been investigating the recruitment company, which the recruitor says is based in Orlando, Florida, since last month.
Agents were investigating whether the recruiting company was knowingly violating the recruiting law by paying workers below the minimum wage, the FBI official said, and whether the company paid workers who were not on the government payroll.
The recruiter has not been charged with any crime, but the FBI says it is investigating whether his job title, recruiter, or title of recruiter could be misleading to potential recruits.
The recruitment company has denied paying workers less than the minimum hourly wage, saying that it has “a robust hiring process that includes extensive background checks.”
The company says it has more than 4,500 employees and employs nearly 4,000 people worldwide.
The company says the recruiting company is an employer-owned company that has been in business for more than a decade.
