Resolved Question:

Our organization has had a flurry of anonymous letters. Is it legal to hire an investigative firm (or use a former FBI agent) to check for fingerprints on the letters and then, require all employees to be finger printed? Are there any legal risks in requiring this? The letters do not indicate potential aggression but are embarassing and twist the truth. In a few cases, there may be slanderous information.

You are free to investigate but you cannot force finger printing of employees in this manner. Consider a formal police complaint and permit the police to investigate the letters.
