Workplace Misconduct Investigations

Helping clients determine what happened, how it occurred and who was responsible.

From fraud, bribery and corruption to leaks of information and sexual misconduct, allegations of workplace misconduct can have a severe impact on all parties involved, often resulting in exposure to legal, regulatory and reputational risk. When allegations of misconduct arise, organizations need a swift, thorough and fair response.

Kroll’s team of experts has extensive experience investigating workplace misconduct. We are especially mindful of the unique sensitivities and concerns when conducting these kinds of investigations and can provide expert fact-finding to help clients determine what happened, how it occurred and who was responsible. 

In addition to providing independent investigations and retrospective reviews, Kroll offers guidance on proactive and remedial measures that include assistance with policies and procedures, as well as staff training and audits.

Our investigations combine advanced technologies with a global network of experts including former prosecutors, law enforcement and regulatory officials, forensic accountants, investigative journalists, compliance professionals and cybersecurity professionals. This blend of expertise, experience and technology allows us to examine workplace misconduct comprehensively and efficiently, whether it involves a data breach, surreptitious financial transactions or electronic communication trails. Our interviewing skills and ability to make discreet enquiries allows us to dig beneath the surface and provide clients with clarity and reliable facts. 

Our specialized services include:

Corporate Compliance Advisory

Helping companies evaluate their compliance functions, prevent breaches, and respond appropriately.

Corporations in every industry face a growing array of compliance obligations. In addition to anti-money laundering and anti-bribery/anti-corruption regulations, there are an increasing number of environmental, social and governance (ESG) requirements covering everything from board composition to data privacy. Furthermore, economic and trade sanctions pose a constantly shifting challenge given the global nature of supply chains, subsidiary holdings, and customer and banking relationships. 

Fulfilling these compliance requirements requires a complex mechanism that includes policies and procedures, training, whistleblowing channels, internal audit, escalation, response and disclosure. Complicating matters further, the mechanism must comply with regulations that differ across jurisdictions, and that may even be at odds with one another. 

Kroll’s Corporate Compliance Advisory practice helps organizations evaluate their compliance functions, prevent compliance breaches, and respond quickly and effectively should a breach occur. Our team includes professionals with regulatory and law enforcement backgrounds, forensic specialists, data analysts, corporate compliance officers and senior practitioners from international audit firms. We have extensive expertise in all major compliance areas, including anti-money laundering (AML), anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) and ESG. 

Kroll’s Corporate Compliance Advisory engagements are customized to address a range of client needs, including:

 

Compliance Assessment and Stress Testing

Our compliance assessments help companies critically examine how compliance is supported throughout the organization. We take a top-down approach, starting with how the board and its committees oversee compliance-related issues and interact with management. We then assess how compliance cascades throughout the organization, at both functional and operational level. Because we take a practical rather than a theoretical approach, we look beyond compliance procedures to focus on how compliance is actually followed within the enterprise. This enables us to identify deficiencies in the practical application of a compliance program, the resulting risks, and the root causes that must be addressed. 

 

Compliance Optimization

Working from the findings of our compliance assessment and stress testing, we can then make specific recommendations tailored to the company and its culture, industry and geographical footprint. These recommendations might include improving the response to whistleblowing allegations, creating and conducting training programs based on real-world scenarios, and suggesting changes to performance incentives to better align them with compliance obligations.

 

Compliance Breach Response and Remediation

No matter how effective a compliance program may be, there are unavoidable instances where fraud, bribery and corruption, or other compliance violations occur, whether as the result of a compliance breach, a vulnerability inherited in an acquisition, or otherwise. In these situations, our Financial Investigations provides our clients’ in-house legal and compliance teams with the full range of Kroll’s global investigative capabilities to determine the extent of the violation, how it occurred, and recommended steps to address regulatory disclosures, investor and reputational concerns and other issues.

 

Case Study – On-Site Review of a Global Ethics and Compliance Program

Kroll undertook an independent on-site expert review of a global company’s ethics and compliance program to comply with an international agency’s procurement and ethics requirements.

Our review covered, amongst other issues, areas related to misconduct, bribery and corruption, fraud, money laundering, sanctions, training, whistleblowing and due diligence. 

 

Case Study – Fraud Risk Review for a European Company

Kroll was engaged by a European company to perform a review of historical fraud-related incidents, investigated potential similar occurrences and assessed the current internal control system. 

The review included an assessment of the effectiveness of secure and accessible confidential channels for reporting breaches of the ethics and compliance program and the procedures for remedial actions.

 

Case Study – Investigative Training Workshop for a FTSE 250 Company

Kroll undertook an engagement with a UK law enforcement agency to develop and deliver an investigative training workshop for a FTSE 250 company. 

The three-day intensive training was delivered on-site by Kroll and law enforcement representatives. Participants were provided with resources for the workshop and were required to complete written and oral examinations. Participants also received a certificate on successful completion of the training.

 

Case Study – Analysis of a Pharmaceutical Company’s FCPA Compliance Program

On behalf of a leading pharmaceutical and medical supply manufacturer, Kroll conducted a risk-based analysis of the company’s FCPA compliance program, as it related to its over 400 third-party distributors. 

Based on our analysis, we designed and implemented an FCPA integrity program, which included public records due diligence on each of the distributors, a risk analysis and ranking of the distributors, and an in-person FCPA training course.

Cyber Due Diligence: Pre-Transaction Assessments Can Uncover Costly Risks


FacebookTweetGoogle PlusLinkedInE-mail
January 28, 2015February 6, 2015 | Tim Ryan and Leonard Navarro

[Cyber Due Diligence] How can you discover if an investment target is one keystroke away from a major cyber incident or data breach? How can you determine that an attacker isn’t already lurking in their network? Cyber due diligence conducted prior to investment can help identify actual or potential cyber security lapses, areas that may be at risk, quantify remediation costs and help restructure an investment should substandard cyber security systems data or latent breaches be discovered.

Tim Ryan, Kroll’s Cyber Investigations Practice Leader launched into a recent webinar discussing the significance of Due Diligence prior to any transaction.

Cyber due diligence is defined further by Tim Ryan as, “the review of the governance, processes and controls that are used to secure information assets.” He goes on, “Many in the field understand that this is not merely a technical issue, that governance plays a very large role in IT security and enterprises today.”

In the webinar, the former FBI agent, lawyer and professor stressed the basic importance of cyber due diligence in your potential M&A transaction by asking simple questions from a qualitative and quantitative view point. Inquiring about pre-transaction testing of current software and systems running in an enterprise can uncover known malware, suspected malware, vulnerable or outdated software, and unrestricted use of dangerous tools often co-opted by hackers.

“We understand due diligence in the regular acquisition and merger process that normally goes on the marketplace. Cyber though, should be an added step because it’s a risk, like any other risk, that may devalue the deal” The benefit to investors in being able to quantify any potential cyber remediation costs, as well as the benefit to sellers being able to strengthen their attractiveness to investors makes cyber due diligence a necessary step in your acquisition or sales process. Ryan stressed further that sellers need to remember that latent cyber issues or shortfalls can appear at crucial times during a sale, “Even if you’re not required to do it right now, in the next eighteen months they are going to be required to do it, so you might as well take this problem off the board right now.”

The forty-minute webinar details the intrusion methodology used by sophisticated attackers and gives viewers an understanding of the nature of intrusions and the potential pervasiveness within an enterprise.  If you are approaching a merger, acquisition or basic need to know what to address in your negotiation, the simple questions and thoughts addressed by Ryan shed light on the costly risks of a lacking cyber due diligence component.
