Responding to misconduct allegations

The importance of effective investigations

An organizations response to allegations of misconduct must be prompt. This can be extremely challenging due to lack of investigative resources, stringent time constraints, or a lack of defined policies and protocols. 

An organization’s response to allegations of misconduct can have a significant impact. Effective investigations are able to:

  • Identify the relevant facts and circumstances surrounding alleged misconduct
  • Understand the pervasiveness of misconduct
  • Assess the potential impact to the organization’s culture
  • Take appropriate corrective and remedial actions based on the facts gathered.

Each investigation we conduct is tailored to our clients’ objectives. We balance the risks and costs of an investigation with the need to obtain the pertinent facts of the alleged misconduct, particularly when the level of scrutiny is high.
