Workplace Investigations

Workplace Investigations

Artemis Legal specializes in several areas of workplace investigations. Workplace Investigations are requested and conducted for many reasons. Some include Wrongful Termination Litigation Support; Company Internal Investigations (Employee Misconduct; Ethical Breach; Retaliation; Integrity; etc.) and more.

Wrongful Termination Litigation Support

So many times employees and independent contractors feel their employment or contract was wrongfully terminated under questionable circumstances and they can feel helpless. Of course, there’s the stress and anxiety of finding a new job to keep the bills paid and food on the table as quickly as possible, but there’s also a feeling of being powerless to take on the company or business who wronged them because they were told their contract or agreement was at-will. If this is you, we’re here to help. While at-will means that employers are able to terminate employees at any time and for any reason, it does not mean that they’re able to do so if the dismissal violates any state or federal laws. Artemis Legal cannot provide legal advice, in situations where there may have been illegal circumstances, we will advise our client to consult an attorney.

Internal Investigations

The reasons for an internal investigation vary. A workplace investigation is conducted when there is credible information that there may have been significant wrongdoing, misconduct or an ethical lapse.

Employee Misconduct Interviews

When an employer or employee suspect misconduct and makes an informal or formal complaint of misconduct, the employer should take immediate steps to stop the alleged conflict, protect involved parties and begin investigations. In addition, any appropriate corrective action is required to be taken by the employer to ensure illegal actions and behaviors cease immediately.

Responsiveness to a complaint and an investigation will not only yield the best information and evidence, but it will also enhance both the investigator’s and the employer’s credibility. Investigations can help the organization identify and resolve internal problems before they become widespread. Given that every complaint has the potential to become a lawsuit, employers should investigate every case in a manner in which it can be presented to a court of law, if necessary. As potentially disruptive as investigations can be, they must be prompt, thorough and effective to ensure everyone’s protection.

Retaliation Investigations

Retaliation is a legal term for an employee because he or she does something protected by the law, such as filing a discrimination complaint or testifying on behalf of someone else. If an employee is accused of wrongdoing, an employer should investigate to determine whether the accusation is true or whether or not it is in retaliation.

Integrity Investigations

Are your employees abusing their company car privileges?
Do you have an employee who is committing insurance fraud and increasing your insurance premiums?
How long does your sales staff really take for lunch?
Where do they go when they say they’re on sales calls?
Can you be sure that your staff members are sick when they say they’re sick?

Employee Integrity Checks should be routine practice. Many businesses hire us to complete corporate investigations in Arizona, because of suspicious employee behavior. Although, rarely do companies make integrity investigations a routine practice. However, it is your companies best interest to investigate prior to hiring to avoid the eventual likelihood of a large potential loss. We recommend you regularly conduct employee integrity investigations regardless of whether you have experienced employee theft of any kind.

Why do we recommend employee integrity investigations in Arizona to all business owners?
