Formula to Estimate Investigative Costs

To ensure transparency and accountability with our clients, the following formula is utilized in order to estimate costs. The length, complexity and risk of an investigation are all factors that may adjust our estimates.

  1. Initial review, analysis, plan and coordination with our corporate clients – 2-3 hrs
  2. Interviews – 2-4 hrs per person (including transcription of interview notes)
  3. Investigation and evidence analysis – 2-4 hrs
  4. Investigation report writing and quality assurance – 10-20 hrs.

Most workplace investigations can be completed in 40-60 hours. When there are several allegations, complainants or witnesses, the client is provided an estimation of hours and costs.  Any additional time required is discussed with our clients.

Fees

Please contact us for a proposal.  We use a sliding fee scale based on investigation complexity and level of corporate risk.  Our fee is based on both industry standard and commensurate with our expertise. This provides our clients with the right investigator and right price for their needs.
