Can you ask human resources to communicate with the litigant directly on your behalf? Can you speak to co-workers? Can you require co-workers to speak to you? Can you check the litigant's social media posts? Can you read their Internet email if accessed from your employer's network? Can you, and should you, protect the attorney–client and work product evidentiary privileges? And what if you are investigating your own boss?
