WHAT WE DO
TYPE OF INVESTIGATIONS WE UNDERTAKE
Our Associates have conducted inquiries into allegations
of serious misconduct made against chief executives, directors,
senior managers, professional staff, educators and members
of philanthropic organisations.
The allegations that we have investigated include conflict
of interest, corruption, secret commissions, dishonesty,
ethical violations, negligence, discrimination, victimisation,
harassment, bullying, threats and intimidation, sexual
assault, common assault, child protection matters, equity
issues, computer misuse, internet misuse, e-mail misuse,
unauthorised disclosure of information, substance abuse,
fraud, theft, intellectual property rights, unfair recruitment
and promotion processes and breaches of organisational
codes of conduct.
In the course of investigations we sometimes find that
in addition to employee misconduct indicating appropriate
disciplinary action, evidence of possible criminal offences,
professional misconduct, corrupt conduct or reportable
conduct emerges. In such cases, we advise our clients
to refer the matter to the appropriate law enforcement,
child protection, regulatory or professional body.
