Investigation of Employee Misconduct in the Digital World

If your organization suspects employee misconduct, for example: IP theft and non-compete violations, you require an internal employee investigation such as internet activity or a work-time study, or have an employment relations issue such as wrongful termination or harassment, then having an Electronic Evidence Expert perform a digital forensic investigation may be crucial.

Electronic devices’ integration into our everyday lives has led to an astronomical volume of evidential data.  Human Resources’, Attorneys’ and Information Technology’s understanding of where to look, how to use electronic evidence and what really goes on beyond just what is visible, only scratches the surface.  This presentation explores the importance of properly investigating digital devices of employees suspected of misconduct, the usefulness of this evidence in Labor and Employment matters, and a deeper dive into what you’re probably missing.
