Workplace Investigations

Employers must promptly address complaints of workplace misconduct. An important first step is to conduct an impartial and thorough investigation focused on determining whether misconduct occurred. By conducting a workplace investigation, an employer can both reduce its legal exposure and identify what steps, if any, it should take to remedy a situation.
