Having seen investigations from multiple perspectives during his career, Gorev believes it is important to be able to get to the truth of a matter and then to articulate the results in a way that demonstrates both the process and the findings in a clear, concise and easily digestible manner.
Gorev investigates complaints of alleged harassment, including sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation, bullying, fraud, and other misconduct.
Before joining OIG, he worked with the Labor and Employment Law and Workplace Investigations groups at the law firm of Meyers Nave, where he conducted independent workplace investigations for public, private, and nonprofit sector employers. He also provided advice and counsel, and he represented employers in litigation.
Gorev has also worked on matters involving schools, representing school districts in special education proceedings, mediations, and due process hearings. He is also familiar with investigations in educational settings, including complaints filed under the Uniform Complaint Procedures.
Gorev is biliterate in Hindi and bilingual in Punjabi.
In his free time, Gorev enjoys playing basketball, going to San Francisco Giants games, and watching “The Office.”
