Fair Square Investigations are the Hunter's specialist provider of independent workplace investigations.We are thorough. And we love to help organisations manage tricky problems.

Our managing director Emma Hale founded the company so that employers, schools and social services professionals would have access to investigators who are specialised, highly trained and knowledgeable in regard to administrative matters.

Her meticiulous attention to detail is a product of being an intelligence analyst and internal investigator with NSW Police, government regulators and non-government organisations (including two providers of Out of Home Care).  

In 2008 Emma was awarded a NSW Police Detectives’ Advisory Board Award for Excellence in Criminal Investigation. In 2011 she received the Griffith Award for Academic Excellence in the Master of Criminology and Criminal Justice Program.

Emma has also worked extensively in schools filling the roles of child protection advisor, professional standards investigator, drug educator and mental health project officer. With this experience she continues to act as an on-call support person for people with intellectual disability in the courts and at police stations.

Her formal qualifications are supported by an array of short courses covering child-safe organisations, advanced online investigation methods, open source intelligence, corporate investigations, investigation report writing,  and the investigation of serious incidents within the contexts of both child protection and disability services.
