Aperçu du document
For successful resolution of all workplace disputes and allegations
of wrongdoing, a prompt, thorough, and efficient investigation
conducted by a trained, neutral investigator is essential. And, it will
also discourage any attempt to litigate the underlying issues. Court
decisions and EEOC Guidance make it clear that any investigation
conducted by an employer requires a “well-trained” investigator
skilled in asking questions and determining credibility.
HR personnel at most companies, while very skilled, do not have the training and/or
experience to conduct such an investigation, thus putting the employer at risk. And,
the use of in-house or retained counsel can result in the counsel becoming a fact
witness in the litigation, and may also put at risk the ability to asset the attorneyclient and work product privileges. The use of neutral, outside investigators
preserves the reality and appearance of neutrality, and makes it more likely that
witnesses will be fully cooperative.
For each and all of these reasons, it just makes good sense to utilize
the expertise of our attorney investigators, Stephen Duggan J.D. and
Lynne Eisaguirre, J.D., for your workplace investigations. With years of

complaints, your result is a prompt, thorough, experienced and
