Understanding Internal Threats in Businesses and Schools
All businesses, including school districts, can face internal issues such as criminal behavior or actions that contribute to a hostile work environment. While these issues might not initially qualify for a criminal investigation by law enforcement, they still need to be thoroughly investigated to prevent potential liabilities.
The Risk of Inadequate Investigation
If these internal matters are not properly investigated, schools or districts may face liabilities for allowing harmful behaviors to persist. This is particularly critical in cases that involve criminal activities, such as internal theft or crimes of moral turpitude, which can lead to significant financial losses or severe harm to the institution and victims.
