Investigation and Interview Workshop
Internal investigations are an everyday occurrence in corporations, small business owners, and the sole proprietor. Investigations come in many forms from employee theft to sexual harassment accusations to accidents. Regardless of the seemingly insignificance of the issue investigated, the final outcome, if improperly conducted, can cost a company far more. An improperly conducted internal investigation can, in fact, result in the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars in litigation fees and damages.
