Internal investigations can be advisable or required when evaluating an employee complaint or defending the company against a formal employment claim. But there are many questions: Should you speak directly to the litigating former employee? What if the litigant is a current employee? 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? Learn how to ethically conduct an employment investigation from a panel of experienced corporate counsel as they discuss challenges, ethical obligations and best practices of internal employment investigations and litigation around the globe.
