707. Employment of Protected Witnesses

Protected witnesses are expected to become self-sufficient as soon as possible after acceptance into the Witness Security Program. The USMS will endeavor to assist the witness to find employment, but the witness is expected to aggressively seek employment. Failure to aggressively seek employment or rejection of an employment opportunity will be grounds for discontinuance of subsistence payments, and processing of the witness for public assistance.
