When reports come in through whistleblowing channels or concerns about employee conduct otherwise arise, a recurring issue has been whether internal investigations must consider the principles of criminal procedural law. In a recent decision, the Federal Supreme Court held that this was not the case and confirmed a reasonable balance between the obligations of employers and the rights of employees provided for by Swiss law.
