This is Happening
Every week brings news of another organization hit with a lawsuit or an executive’s resignation due to workplace misconduct.
Over the last year, employees from all sectors have come forward with complaints of harassment — some spanning decades — that were never investigated or appropriately addressed. These complaints have serious repercussions on workplace culture, productivity, community partnerships and profitably.
Shareholders, directors and consumers understand that these complaints must be investigated thoroughly, impartially and promptly.

Each investigation is led and supervised by the firm’s Managing Shareholder, Kirsten Doolittle, a board-certified labor and employment law attorney, Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator and Florida Supreme Court Qualified Arbitrator, with more than 18 years experience litigating and trying labor and employment cases.
In addition, Ms. Doolittle is a Certificate Holder with the Association of Workplace Investigators (AWI-CH), an ANSI-accredited professional association of workplace investigators dedicated to promoting and enhancing the quality of workplace investigations.
Our attorneys begin each investigation with a plan. In that plan, we outline a strategy to discover the most information with the least amount of operational disruption and intrusion into employees’ privacy.
Each investigation is concluded with a report that identifies the nature of the complaint, the facts and evidence discovered, and an analysis of the evidence and findings, which are driven by the evidence gathered during the investigation.
Aequitas Counsel maintains an attorney-client relationship with the organization. Our duty to the client is to provide a thorough, impartial and prompt investigation. If the facts lead to the conclusion that misconduct occurred, it is our duty to inform the client so that the client can take appropriate, corrective action.
