Conducting Internal Investigations and Separate Counsel for Employees

A recent article at InsideCounsel discusses whether your employees should have separate counsel during internal investigations:

When that scenario arises, it is time to launch an internal investigation to ferret out any wrongdoing and to take swift action to correct it.

However, if the suspected wrongdoing turns out to have been conducted by one or more employees, the investigation may lead to anything from disciplinary proceedings against employees to criminal charges.
