WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department's inspector general says eight high-ranking employees in the department's justice management division improperly promoted the hiring of relatives for summer or full-time work or assisted others in doing so.

The IG's report is the third investigation of improper hiring practices in the division. The inspector general criticized two previous directors of the Facilities and Administrative Services Staff in 2004 and again in 2008 for manipulating the competitive hiring process to favor particular candidates.

In the new report, the IG found that an assistant director for human resources and the director of the Facilities and Administrative Services Staff engaged in nepotism by hiring each other's children.
