My current supervisor received a questionnaire about me in the mail for my DoD secret clearance. He said he reached out to the corporate HR office for my company, and apparently our legal department told him not to fill out the questionnaire for whatever reason. He said he would be more than happy to fill it out, but does not want to get in trouble with the company by doing so.
How will this typically effect the clearance process? Does this add a significant delay if he does not return the questionnaire? I know the investigators will have to verify my current employment at my company. Is this the main method used to verify employment, or are there other methods used? The main concern I have is that this will add a significant delay to my investigation.
