When Law Enforcement Comes Knocking: Legal and Practical Considerations
May 21, 2015
A couple of FBI agents or U.S. Postal Inspectors drop by your office to ask you some questions related to a client complaint about alleged misrepresentations. You take the agents into a conference room, or downstairs for a cup of coffee, where they interview you. You are given no Miranda warning and are not placed under oath.
- Do you have to tell the agents the truth?
- Do you have to correct the agents if you learn that they have some of their facts wrong?
- What are the risks to you in this interview?
Our panel of experienced practitioners will discuss how to handle the legal and practical issues presented in this ever more common situation. Topics covered will include applicable statutes, communicating with government agents, employee training, policies and procedures.
