In this podcast recorded at Ogletree Deakins’ national Workplace Strategies seminar, Lisa Burton (shareholder, Boston/Portland (ME)) and Lisa Hamasaki (shareholder, San Francisco) discuss what employers can do when they discover evidence of serious criminal activities during a workplace investigation. Covering issues ranging from evidence of illegal pornography on a company computer and assaults in the workplace to embezzlement and violations of corrupt practices laws, our speakers delve into the significant layer of complexity that criminal issues add to workplace investigations. The conversation highlights issues such as reporting obligations to law enforcement and regulatory agencies, preservation of evidence, employees’ privacy concerns, and the attorney-client privilege—and provides a roadmap for handling these complex scenarios while mitigating overall risk.
