Corporate Investigations: Factors to Consider Before Launching an Investigation

HomeBlogCorporate Investigations: Factors to Consider Before Launching an Investigation

Corporate investigations can help you obtain solid evidence to be used in a court of law when you suspect someone within your company has committed fraud or another type of crime. In many situations, however, companies use careful discretion when deciding whether or not to launch corporate investigations. Although the need to investigate in certain situations is obvious, consider the following factors when determining whether to formally investigate or not:

  • The severity of the allegations and whether the misconduct violates a company policy or federal/state criminal law

  • Whether the misconduct involves board members or senior management
  • What kind of exposure your company will experience if it turns out that the allegations are true
  • The possibility that future violations will occur or that they are continuing at present
  • Whether the conduct could affect the safety and health of other people or your other employees
  • Whether your company’s policies or code of conduct requires or encourages a formal investigation
  • Whether you need to report the issue to law enforcement or regulatory officials
  • The impact any potential civil litigation will have on your business
