If you are under investigation in the State of Florida for Public Assistance Fraud (SNAP fraud, EBT fraud, Medicare Fraud), then investigators from the Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS) are permitted to show up at your place of employment to speak to your employer and/or coworkers. They are also permitted to subpoena your tax records, pay stubs, and other employment documents.
The point of this is so that they can prove that you were employed and earning X-amount of dollars per year, which may conflict with the amount of income you disclosed on your public assistance applications.
