WASHINGTON — A House Financial Services subcommittee will hold a meeting Tuesday to authorize subpoenas against three officials at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau who previously declined to testify about employee allegations of discrimination and retaliation.

The House Oversight and Investigations subcommittee announced the meeting late Thursday after the CFPB and its union declined to send three officials to testify at a April 2 panel hearing, saying it would undermine the credibility of the agency's grievance process.

Martin said her case was an indicator of widespread employee problems at the agency.
