Prompt, Efficient and Cost-Effective
We know that all parties want matters resolved as quickly as possible. EquitAbility Consulting investigators tackle each investigation promptly, and their decades of experience enable them to investigate claims effectively and efficiently.
Investigations can put stress on a company or campus by diverting time and resources already allocated to other matters. Using an outside investigator can help minimize that stress by allowing internal resources to continue their focus on existing projects instead of re-allocating them to an investigation. Using an independent investigator can also preserve outside counsel’s role in litigation.
Our training services are designed to educate groups in a way that is productive and not disruptive to your workplace or campus.
An unbiased investigation is essential. EquitAbility Consulting investigators are absolutely neutral. Our objectivity is never compromised by power dynamics within the company or personal relationships with parties or witnesses. We have no vested interest in the outcome of investigations. Our only goal is to conduct prompt, thorough, and fair investigations.
EquitAbility Consulting investigators are knowledgeable about the various laws that must be followed in investigating and responding to reports of discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct. We conduct investigations in a way that minimizes the risk of claims under Title IX, Title VII, ADA, ADEA, regulations and sub-regulatory guidance, and state and local discrimination laws. We incorporate evolving best practices for conducting sensitive investigations, and complete our careful and thorough investigations by preparing comprehensive, well-written reports.
EquitAbility Consulting trainers use their extensive experience and practical knowledge to lead engaging sessions on nondiscrimination, harassment prevention, and inclusion in the workplace and campus. We cover micro-aggressions, implicit bias, types of discrimination and harassment, sexual misconduct, civility, professionalism, company policy, and reporting.
Discreet and Professional
We conduct every investigation with the greatest respect for the privacy of the parties and witnesses involved. We have decades of experience in discreetly handling sensitive matters in ways that avoid the spread of confidential information within an organization.
Trained and Trauma Informed
EquitAbility Consulting investigators use best practices for conducting sensitive civil rights and sexual misconduct investigations. We conduct trauma-informed investigations, and know how to work with individuals who may have experienced harassment or sexual violence. Our skilled investigators can make determinations about the credibility of testimony provided by parties in cases involving one person’s word against another’s.
