An investigation by the White House determined that Eric Lander, director of White House Office of Science and Technology Policy violated the administration’s workplace-behavior rules. He was accused of bullying, embarrassing, and insulting staff.
The investigation into Dr. Lander began in 2021 after reports were received that he was demeaning in his interactions with his staff, and the investigation found he had violated the safe and respectful workplace policy.
