Whether you run a business or an educational institution, dealing with claims of workplace discrimination or sexual harassment is stressful and worrisome. These cases require a detailed investigation, and you want to ensure that your investigation is handled thoroughly and ethically.

Why Conduct a Third-Party Investigation?

If you are dealing with allegations of misconduct, discrimination, or harassment in the workplace; conducting a detailed, impartial investigation is critical to mitigating risk and perhaps resolving the matter. 

Employees who file complaints often mistrust or are skeptical of investigations handled internally. This is where a third-party investigator, particularly one with a legal background, can be invaluable. 

We also regularly assist school districts, colleges, and universities with impartial investigations related to alleged violations of Title IX and general policy compliance. These investigations are conducted to address allegations of misconduct or violations of school policies by students, faculty, or staff.

Our third-party investigators can help you with the following:

Interviewing of key witnesses 

Gathering evidence and documenting the investigation 

Assessment of workplace procedures and processes

Assessment of company training and reporting processes

Comprehensive reporting of all findings 

Analysis of the situation

Our third-party investigators can also provide recommendations based on investigation findings, including corrective and/or disciplinary actions. We can also offer guidance on next steps, including adjusting training methods, reporting procedures, and general processes to help you protect your employees, students and your business/institution from future claims.

Reasons to consider hiring a third-party investigator:

    • You want to ensure impartiality

    • You want to protect your employees, staff, or students from retaliation

    • You want to ensure confidentiality throughout the investigation process

    • Your company or organization doesn’t have the capacity for an internal review

    • Witnesses gain confidence knowing that their confidentiality will be fully protected

At Krigel Nugent + Moore, we conduct workplace investigations with:

    • Impartiality

    • Confidentiality

    • Integrity

    • Compassion

    • Sensitivity

Hiring a neutral, external third-party investigator to oversee and conduct the workplace investigation can help protect your business or institution from risks associated with a flawed internal investigation. The goal of any investigation should be to illuminate the situation at hand and gain as clear an understanding of the circumstances of the case as possible so that appropriate action may be taken.
