Before attempting any internal workplace investigation, ask yourself the following questions;
Do you have the experience and expertise to properly manage the investigative process?
Employers have a duty and responsibility to conduct fair and thorough investigations. Management and Human Resources specialists may lack the knowledge to properly investigate issues. It is crucial to have an experienced professional manage the process. Trusting the process to an untrained investigator can be very costly.
Are you truly independent?
The perception of fairness is key. Even though your team may possess the skills necessary to conduct the investigation in-house, will you be sufficiently insulated against an allegation of political motivation, preferential treatment or unfairness?
Avoid the perception of bias by engaging an independent investigative team.
Do you have the tools to do the job?
Are video and access controls in place? Have you preserved your evidence so that it withstands scrutiny and is admissible in court?
Can you afford to do it yourself?
Can you afford to dedicate key members of your organizations to the investigative process? Can you afford to lose your key members to long, drawn out court processes? Can you afford the inevitable workplace disruptions and damage to staff morale. An independent, professional approach can be more cost effective. Do the math and weigh the costs before deciding how to handle your investigation.
Do you have the time to properly manage the investigation?
Investigations can be time consuming and detrimental to your productivity. Can you conduct the investigation in a timely fashion that is not only fair to your employee, but also set the appropriate management tone? Can you lose key resources to a lengthy investigation? Conducting an investigation in a consistent and timely manner is a prerequisite to guaranteeing the credibility of the process.

Our investigators are seasoned professionals who have conducted hundreds of interviews of both victims and suspects. Wrongful termination suits are often decided based on the interview process. A flawed interview can greatly influence the outcome of a wrongful termination action.
Investigations can be complicated and if not conducted properly, can result in wrongful dismissal suits as well as costs being awarded to your former employees. If your in-house team is inexperienced in investigations and mismanages the process, the cost to you could be significant.
