Independent Workplace Investigations

When facing an allegation of misconduct in the workplace, there are many critical decisions an employer must make. Having a neutral third party conduct an efficient and comprehensive investigation to determine what actually occurred is one of the best decisions an employer can make, because such investigations facilitate a more open discussion with employees about the alleged misconduct.

Additionally, having a neutral, and more importantly, unbiased, third party who is well-versed in employment law matters conducting an investigation into misconduct can be beneficial if the misconduct results in litigation. Common types of workplace investigations include allegations of:

  • Discrimination on the basis of age, sex, pregnancy, disability, race, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, and more
  • Sexual harassment
  • Whistleblowing activity
  • Retaliation
  • Misconduct by employees (such as violence, bullying, or performance issues)
  • Breach of confidentiality
  • Breach of covenants not-to-compete
