Internal investigation and searches


The purpose of this Policy is to delineate employee responsibilities regarding internal investigations and searches conducted by the University.


From time to time, Lynn University may conduct internal investigations in consultation with Employee Services. Employees are required to cooperate fully with and assist in these investigations if requested to do so.

Whenever necessary, in the University’s discretion, any place on campus, including employee work areas (i.e., offices, cubicles, desks, lockers, file cabinets, etc.) and personal belongings brought onto campus or to a University-sponsored event (i.e., packages, briefcases, handbags, knapsacks, computers, laptops, vehicles, etc.) may be subject to a search without notice. Employees are required to cooperate.

The University will generally try to obtain an employee’s consent before conducting a search of work areas or personal belongings, but may not always be able to do so.
