Robert S. Katz Esq:
I am writing to recommend Elizabeth Fujiwara, Esq. for employment as an internal investigator of employment discrimination allegations. As an attorney who has represented employers in labor and employment matters since 1968, including many employers responding to employment discrimination claims from one or more of their employees, I have frequently encountered Ms. Fujiwara as the attorney representing the employee. I have been impressed by the knowledge of federal and Hawaii employment law demonstrated by Ms. Fujiwara and the thoroughness of her work. Furthermore, in those cases where settlement was a better solution than litigation for all parties, Ms. Fujiwara was able to bring the parties together and facilitate a resolution that was fair to both parties.
Based on the experiences described above I believe that Ms. Fujiwara is well qualified to serve as an internal investigator of employment discrimination claims. Ms. Fujiwara would not only be able to provide a thorough and accurate investigation, but equally important, she would be an articulate and effective witness.
Thank you for the opportunity to express my opinion regarding Ms. Fujiwara’s qualifications for the function of internal investigator in employment discrimination disputes.
Very truly yours,
Robert S. Katz Esq.
