Agency Responses

We help companies in Hawaii respond effectively to and comply with agency investigations

Companies under investigation by a state or federal agency for allegedly violating the law need to respond in writing quickly. While writing an agency response might seem like a straightforward task, it is extremely critical to choose the right words and communicate clearly. A poorly drafted or incomplete response can have serious consequences and affect the outcome of your case.

At Torkildson, Katz, Moore, Hetherington & Harris, Attorneys at Law, our knowledgeable attorneys can work with your company and help draft a professional response to the applicable state or federal government agency. We have extensive experience handling complex labor and employment law cases in Hawaii. Our attorneys can help your company respond in writing to the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission (HCRC), Hawaii Labor Relations Board (HLRB), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor or whatever government agency is investigating your company.

How Can We Help Your Company Respond To A Government Agency?

State or federal agencies typically investigate companies in response to a complaint filed by an employee or as part of a routine investigation. Sometimes, responding to a government agency can take a few hours. Other times, we might need to work with your business for several days or weeks to fully comply with a request for information from a state or federal agency.

In addition, we can help your company revise any policies or employee handbooks or conduct employment-related training sessions for employees to avoid similar inquiries or investigations in the future. Your company's well-being is our business.
