Investigations are happening everywhere. They cover any topic; harassment in the work place, cyber-bullying, fraud, expense account abuse, conflict of interest, theft of product, irresponsible conduct. Everyone is becoming an investigator…But, to be a good investigator, you need to know the fundamentals. The body of work required is always made of the same parts. If you examine the anatomy of an investigation, certain principles exist, certain steps are necessary, certain rules apply. This seminar studies that body of work.

 

·        How do you actually know when there is something to investigate?

Ø  What is an investigation? Why do you really do them? Purpose makes perfect because proper preparation is the key to success. For a good investigation, everything is in the planning – which starts as soon as the problem can be identified.  But, what if you can’t identify the problem? How do you investigate a suspicion?

·        What kind of investigative team is appropriate?

Ø  Is the investigation to find facts on which to base legal advice? Is the investigation merely to satisfy a statutory requirement? When can it be internal? When should you use a third party from outside? What role should lawyers play? When do you need experts?  What role do experts play?

·        What does the Company environment tell you?

·        How do you collect evidence properly?

Ø  Evidence is always the key.  Do you need to care where the evidence came from and how it was acquired?  How can the facts be proven? How does one protect documents, computer records, cell phone texts. What protocols are appropriate?

·        Ethical component in an investigation.

Ø  Ethical standards shape approach.  Learn about the ethical way to do the job.

·        Can you expect employees to participate in the process?

Ø  What rights does the respondent have? How do those rights affect the manner of investigation? Do you have to be fair? What does that even mean?

·        How important is budget? Must an investigation have an open budget? Is an investigation flawed if there are financial constraints?

·        How do you interview well?

·        What does a good investigation report look like?

Ø  Must there be a Report? How should it read? Is there a formula? Does it matter about the purpose? Who gets to see the Report? How will it be used?

·        How do you use the end product?

Lawyer Ross Dunsmore and a team of experienced investigators and counsel will answer these questions. If you take this anatomy course, you will be well on your way to understanding the components of a good investigation.
