It is important for employers to investigate and resolve claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation and other employment issues at the earliest possible opportunity. It is also important for employees to come forward with their claim(s) of discrimination to allow the employer to adequately investigate and address the employee’s complaint(s).

Often, one of the issues in employment litigation is whether the employee’s claims were properly investigated.  Not only must the investigator be sensitive to legal issues that become known during the investigation, the investigator must be able to testify with credibility to a jury about the investigation. The person investigating the employment issues needs to be proficient in employment law and very knowledgeable about how to conduct a proper and thorough investigation. Idaho Employment Law Solutions attorney R. A. (Ron) Coulter, through his military service as a Judge Advocate in the United States Marine Corps and his experience in both the private and public civilian arena has over twenty-five years of experience in thoroughly conducting and reviewing such investigations.

If Idaho Employment Law Solutions conducts the investigation or offers advice based on the investigation, Idaho Employment Law Solutions may be called as a witness about those matters, which could threaten the attorney-client privilege or result in disqualification of the employer’s attorney. Therefore, if Idaho Employment Law Solutions is retained to conduct the investigation for a specific employer, the employer’s attorneys will represent the employer during the litigation and Idaho Employment Law Solutions will testify at trial, if necessary.

I was involved in an administrative procedure which could have ultimately led to my termination of employment. I contacted Idaho Employment Law Solutions which is owned and operated by Ron Coulter, a career U.S. Marine Corps Officer.  The qualities that impressed me most about Ron, was that nothing was “sugar coated”, Ron was up-front, straight forward, and Ron told me what to expect at each phase of the administrative process. When I asked a question, Ron always took care to provide a complete answer which very often included a follow-up legal analysis that a lay person could understand. Ron is an outstanding and experienced employment law attorney. He was reassuring and effective in his representation of me in this  administrative procedure.  There is no doubt, that the selection of Idaho Employment Law Solutions was the correct choice
