For both practical and legal reasons, internal investigations are increasingly becoming an important part of business culture. Those who conduct internal investigations on behalf of their organizations must be aware of the importance of following through with conducting, timely, effective and compliant internal investigations when warranted, as well as the best practices for conducting those investigations.
Properly conducted internal investigations can facilitate prompt conflict resolution and potentially reduce the likelihood of litigation. Properly conducted internal investigations can also provide important evidence in the event litigation does arise. In contrast, poorly conducted internal investigations can create bad evidence.
