Understanding Garrity and Kalkines Warnings in Government Investigations
Thursday, December 9, 2021
1:00-2:00 pm Eastern
Due to self-incrimination issues that may arise in the context of internal investigations, the federal government is generally required to provide Garrity or Kalkines warnings prior to questioning an employee. But what do these warnings mean and what is the difference between them? Experienced practitioners will discuss:

  • the purpose of the warnings
  • Garrity v. New Jersey 385 U.S.493 (1967) and Kalkines v. United States 473 F.2d 1391 (Fed. Cir. 1973) the case law that established the warnings, and
  • a government employee’s options in the face of investigatory questions.
