Ethics and Misconduct

Organisations are often vulnerable to fraudulent, criminal and inappropriate behaviours.   Employers can be confronted with significant staff complaints, breaches of internal discipline and official misconduct.  A prompt, independent and robust response to allegations sends a powerful message to employees, customers, regulators, shareholders and investors.

Such investigations are demanding on time and require independence, impartiality, objectivity and procedural fairness in accordance with the principles of natural justice.  Independent inquiry, free from any perceptions of pre-conceived notions by those involved is fundamental to just outcomes.

LKA Group has an experienced team of investigators who specialise in ethics and misconduct investigations.  Our team includes anti-corruption specialists, lawyers with significant experience in conducting misconduct and workplace investigations and relevant experience in governance, integrity and risk management.

All work is overseen by legal technical case managers to ensure the interests of the clients are maintained and protected, as well as ensuring an environment of continuous improvement and high quality outcomes.
