Employee Investigations

Helping you take a closer look.

With an upturn in reported fraud and an increasing regulatory environment in many sectors, a wide range of organisations are coming under scrutiny.

As a result, how businesses manage internal crisis, and in particular the employees involved, is even more important.

Statistics suggest that most fraud involves someone ‘on the inside’ and dealing with the special risks that the employment law framework provides is a challenge for any organisation.

Complex whistleblowing or discrimination allegations can be damaging for an organisation and managing these risks is vitally important.

Our team of investigators include specialist employment lawyers trained in cognitive interviewing techniques. They provide a cost effective way of investigating employee fraud, grievances, whistleblowing or discrimination issues.

Often organisations will not have capacity to carry out internal investigations themselves or will need to demonstrate independence to internal committees or external regulators.

Our team can investigate the issues and present the findings for your purposes.

With experience in both the public and private sectors, the team will look to minimise the risk to your organisation caused by the employee issue and achieve your commercial objective.

We also provide training to internal investigators, giving them the skills they need to properly present evidence in an effective way.
