Workplace & Title IX Investigations
Bolster Your Internal Resources
When a workplace issue comes to the attention of an employer, it triggers a legal obligation for the employer to conduct a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation.
Effective investigations of employee allegations are a critical component of an employer’s defense to many employment claims. Yet employers often do not have the necessary internal resources to conduct a prompt investigation, as required by law.
Ensure Impartiality with an External Expert
Allegations of workplace misconduct can raise serious, sensitive issues. If they involve senior executives, the need for confidentiality and objectivity is even greater.
Impartiality may be called into question if internal resources, such as HR, are the primary source for the investigation. Hiring an experienced external investigator is often the only way to meet your obligation to conduct a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation.
