A prompt, fair, effective and impartial investigation is good business. Employees
frequently go to court because they believe that their employer will not hear or resolve
their issues. Our courts have also recognized that a prompt and objective investigation
can be an effective defense in employment matters. On the other hand, the lack of an
investigation, an ineffective investigation -- or even the perception of a "white wash" --
can have devastating consequences, including financial liability, damage to reputation,
negative impact on employee morale, destruction of confidentiality, lawsuits against the
company and the investigator, and the lost opportunity to correct a small problem before
it festers and grows.
We approach each investigation without a pre-conceived bias. Our experience provides a practical understanding of the
workplace and competing interests. Our in-depth experience with business practices also allows us to conduct more efficient
investigations, with less learning curve.
We believe that our expertise and impartiality is particularly helpful where the allegations involve sensitive claims against high-
level executives or other politically sensitive concerns. We have investigated complaints ranging from individual allegations of
discrimination, harassment and retaliation to claims of systemic discrimination, and allegations of conflicts of interest,
bribery and kickbacks, improper marketing activities, failure to disclose information, and financial improprieties.
