Vaughan Investigations possesses the experience to advise clients on the merits and potiential disadvantages of pursuing a criminal prosecution. Frequently, owners/managers are highly motivated to proceed with criminal charges; however this is not always the most prudent course of action. Criminal prosecutions can often be a protracted and ultimately an unsatisfying process, and the level of evidential proof that is required must meet a higher standard than that required in purely civil proceedings (including the adequate support of employee termination). Ultimately, this decision rests with the client and Vaughan Investigations can provide input that results in a fully informed decision.
