An internal investigation is conducted when there is a reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing, misconduct or ethical lapses by employees and stakeholders.
A quality investigation brings value to the organization and assists business managers who must respond appropriately to correct the situation if needed.
An internal investigation affects the people involved, from the alleged perpetrator, who may be disciplined, prosecuted or terminated, to the manager who may be blamed for what he did or didn’t do, or should have done.
Good investigators are ever mindful that their efforts have serious consequences not only for the accused, but also for the innocent third parties, such as family members, who will pay heavily for sloppiness and mistakes. “Good enough” should never be good enough for anyone conducting internal investigation.
This is why corporate professionals involved in investigation must be properly trained. Good training in investigation techniques also helps prevent the loss of evidence, unfair or unethical practices, and can withstand scrutiny in court if it goes to trial.
