An assistant manager for the world’s largest credit union claimed the $128 billion Navy Federal Credit Union allegedly retaliated against her for blowing the whistle on mortgage lending practices she claimed were illegal.

These allegations were made in a federal lawsuit filed in July by Michelle Stevenson, a 20-year Navy Federal employee who served as an assistant manager of Navy Federal’s mortgage underwriting in Herndon, Va. She is now on disability leave because of what she described as extreme emotional distress from the credit union’s alleged retaliation.
