The outcome of an investigation provides the basis for critical employment decisions — a prompt, thorough and unbiased review is an essential part of both preventing liability and maintaining a healthy workplace. For those instances when an investigation is required, Jim Webber Investigations can either conduct the investigation or can coach your internal investigator through the process from start to finish.

For employment matters that have moved into litigation, Jim Webber Mediation is available to help seek an early resolution without the great expense of a trial.
