For answers that matter,
Workplace & Institutional Investigations
When you engage an expert to conduct an external investigation, you convey an important message about your organization. You’re saying that you take complaints seriously and are willing to invest the necessary time and resources to ensure a fair outcome.
A fair outcome requires findings that stand up to scrutiny. That’s what we deliver.
Impartiality is the cornerstone of every investigation we conduct.
Mortimer Khoraych is home to a diverse group of employment lawyers who practice exclusively in workplace and institutional investigations. To guarantee neutrality, our assessments and findings are always made independently of any participant or employer/institution. Furthermore, we never provide legal advice to anyone involved throughout the course of the investigation.
Mortimer Khoraych conducts investigations in both the private and public sectors, in both unionized and non-unionized environments, and at all organizational levels. Beyond the workplace, we are frequently retained to conduct service-based investigations into complaints by patients, students, customers, and other individuals, in relation to interactions with business entities and other institutions.
We offer remote investigations services.
In the event that witnesses are disbursed geographically or in other circumstances that prohibit the completion of in-person investigations in a timely and practical manner, we are able to conduct witness interviews remotely using web-based technologies.
Our investigations span a broad range of allegations and misconduct.
Below are some examples of the types of investigations we conduct. We invite you to inquire about any unique needs you may have.
- Harassment (related to a protected ground or general)
- Sexual harassment
- Discrimination, including unconscious bias, microaggressions, and equity
- Workplace violence
- Unfair labour practices
- Drug use at work
- Dishonesty, theft, and fraud
- Conflicts of interest
- Abuse of authority/power
- Breaches of workplace policies (e.g. Codes of Conduct and Respectful Workplace policy breaches, procurement, nepotism, gift policies)
- Systemic workplace issues
