Neutral Fact Finding Investigations
When there is a charge of discrimination the human resources office is required to conduct an investigation. But sometimes a case is especially sensitive due to the issues or the parties involved and an outside neutral can more appropriately and quickly handle that internal investigation and provide a report to the executive in charge.
We have a contract to provide neutral fact finding investigations for Montgomery County, Maryland Government and have also provided these services to Montgomery Community College.
If you’re seeking a professional fact finding investigator in the Maryland, Washington, DC or Northern Virginia area, call Alternative Resolutions today.
An ombudsman is a third party neutral who plays the role of an independent, confidential conciliator or problem solver. If there are organizational change issues or leadership and management challenges facing your firm or organization an ombudsman can assist by helping all staff figure out their options during such transitional times. An ombudsman reports directly to the chief executive and will report general trends in the types of cases and issues that come to the ombuds. Because of the special vantage point occupied by the ombuds he or she can also make recommendations for policy changes that can improve the organizational functions.
We have served as a contract ombudsman for the Space Telescope Science Institute at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD and have special training from the International Ombudsman Association.
