Compliance Internal Investigations

Do I need to conduct an internal investigation?

There are instances where companies become aware of potentially contentious issues, either through the actions of employees or from external information that may need addressing before escalating into a formal investigation by the authorities.

When issues arise or are suspected, information is crucial. Understanding and reviewing potential weaknesses are vital in forming a strategy to resolve problems and enhance compliance procedures as the company moves forward.

If you become aware of any potentially damaging issues within your business, it is advisable to initiate an internal investigation before relevant enforcement agencies become involved.

How do I conduct an internal investigation?

The day-to-day operation of your company is of paramount importance.

To ensure the smooth running of your business, a credible third party, XT 24, can conduct a discreet and focused investigation. This ensures that the company can continue business as usual, and any reputational concerns can be minimized.

By allocating you a personalized XT 24 team of experts to conduct your investigation, we will provide a detailed report of the findings, along with recommendations for potential actions to be taken. This guarantees that all matters are addressed, allowing the company to put any problems behind it and move forward with confidence.

What happens if something is uncovered?

Unfortunately, there are circumstances when an investigation will uncover dubious activity.

In such cases, the company may be required to report discrepancies found to the authorities. Alternatively, they may wish to self-report an issue before the authorities conduct their own inquiries.

In certain circumstances, a Deferred Prosecution Agreement may be a consideration.

Whatever the scenario, your bespoke XT 24 team will advise and guide you on the most appropriate steps to take.
