We wrote the manual on conducting internal investigations...
Having spent over two decades investigating allegations of employee misconduct, critical incidents, and public sector labor law issues, we are unique in the private investigations genre.
We have created a new paradigm for private investigations and consulting in public sector issues. Contract negotiations and enforcement, disciplinary matters, threat assessments and strategies...are all starting to be be outsourced now to decrease costs and reduce or eliminate conflicts of interests.
FROM A FORMER IDAHO SUPREME COURT JUSTICE:
PUBLIC SECTOR DISCIPLINE is a specialty field and knowing the boundaries, employees' and managements' rights and responsibilities is critical in producing a reliable investigation from which managers can make a determination that will sustain criticism and litigation.
