An employee complaint about a workplace issue is serious business. A prompt, thorough and impartial investigation can provide the employer with needed information to resolve the matter. It can also satisfy an employer’s legal obligation to investigate complaints in an effective, fair manner – including taking any necessary corrective action.
We conduct independent, professional investigations into all types of workplace complaints. Bringing together both legal expertise and a realistic HR perspective, these third-party investigations ensure the employer’s compliance with legal requirements while also enhancing employee relations by demonstrating the employer’s commitment to a workplace free of harassment, discrimination and other inequities (whether actual or perceived).
The advantages of retaining an external investigator are numerous.
Increased objectivity, credibility and sensitivity, and experience in conducting investigations, solid record-keeping, thorough analysis of evidence, experience and credibility as a witness, and qualified advice in determining corrective action, if necessary, are a few examples.
These are just some of the areas that we conduct independent investigations of employee complaints:
- Unlawful Harassment
- Discrimination and Diversity Issues
- Workplace Violence and Conflict
- Discipline and Termination
- Employee Misconduct and Fraud
- Executive Improprieties
- Whistleblower Complaints
