Our thorough and impartial investigations can be key to resolving workplace misunderstandings, deciding matters of discipline, preventing unsafe or discriminatory working environments, and
demonstrating that a public entity has complied with its policies prohibiting discrimination and harassment. Our well-reasoned investigative findings can support a public entity’s actions if they are challenged in disciplinary proceedings or in state or federal court.
With extensive backgrounds in litigation and appellate practice, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge required to conduct thorough, impartial, and fair investigations, and to produce a well-written and persuasive report. We have conducted investigations ranging from high level, high profile, and politically sensitive matters to more routine allegations of workplace violence, fraud, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and other policy violations.
Our significant public sector experience allows us to work with our clients to determine the proper scope of each investigation and to ensure compliance with all applicable substantive and procedural laws and rules, including due process requirements, the Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act, the Firefighters Procedural Bill of Rights Act, and applicable labor agreements.
