What We Offer
Successful workplace investigations are complex undertakings. They are time consuming and fraught with enormous potential for legal liability. When done properly, they combine an intricate mixture of skill, experience and luck. Those who attempt them without an adequate understanding of their fundamentals are recklessly naive. Workplace investigations can also be expensive. Today’s competitive world requires organizations of all sizes, both public and private to manage their resources carefully. An improperly conducted workplace investigation can be ruinous and destroy the careers of everyone who touches it. Few workplace activities invoke so much risk and at the same time, so much opportunity.
Large or small, organizations of all types routinely conduct internal workplace investigations. Though the objectives, and certainly the scope of these undertakings have varied widely, their principal purpose is most often that of objective fact-finding. Thus the fact-finder must be fair, impartial, thorough and purposeful. Then to fulfill the varied objectives of the assigned investigation, the effective fact-finder must have a process. Lacking an effective process, fact-finders often spend more time and resources than necessary, produce inconsistent results, and create unnecessary liabilities for those they serve. No investigation, regardless of its objectives or scope can be successful if not properly engineered and driven by process. ForensicPathways, Inc. pioneered this methodology and today calls it The Process of Investigation.
Using The Process of Investigation and our many years of experience we are able to engineer and conduct every investigation we perform to maximize results and our clients’ return on investment while reducing their exposure to liability. Areas of expertise include:
- Actual or alleged workplace misconduct (employee theft, harassment, discrimination, substance abuse and threats of violence);
- Actual or alleged civil and criminal acts targeting the organization (fraud, white collar crime, theft of intellectual property, governmental over-reach and breaches of fiduciary and contractual obligations);
- Assistance with civil recovery and restitution; and
- Assistance with both civil and criminal prosecution and defense.
Imagine if you can—someone not having a conscience—none at all. Imagine a life absent the feelings of guilt and remorse, no limiting sense of concern for others, their safety, or their boundaries. Image having no capacity for shame, sorrow or sense of responsibility—image instead a life filled with deceit, deception and the ability to conceal one’s inner most thoughts and desires. Distinctly, he is free of all internal restraints, unhampered by the burdens spiritual beliefs, cultural morals, or the rule of law. He is carelessly speeding through life with no guardrails—intentionally colliding with unsuspecting victims such as yourself or your organization—leaving behind only the wreckage of sorrow, disappointment and economic ruin.
Now image you are the employer, co-worker or business partner of such a person. Imagine you are not only his colleague but you or your organization is his target. How will you recognize this individual, confine his selfishness and greed, and safely extricate yourself before he destroys you and all that which is important you? Often the answers and provided by professional external resources.

Looking for someone? Everyone, at one time or another has lost touch with someone they know. Whether looking for a friend, family member, former classmate, lost love, or just a casual acquaintance, we can almost always find them. We know the motivation to find others is not only natural, it is often necessary. It is true, that the vast majority of those who “go missing” have either simply decided to disconnect from those they know or intentionally failed to advise their, friends, partners, employers, parents or guardians where they have gone. In some cases, those who intentionally go missing, simply don’t respond to those attempting to contact them. Some go so far as to assume a new name. Others materially change their identities to make themselves more difficult to find.
To meet these challenges, regardless of your motive, or whatever your legal purpose, we offer a simple and inexpensive solution. Not only can we locate and find someone, we can assist you reconnecting with that special person. For businesses we can find former employees and assist in the recovery of company issued computers, cell phones, printers, tools, vehicles and other valuable items which that person failed to return to you or your organization. If interested, learn more about that service under the adjacent Asset Recovery tab.
