Assisting Employers With Workplace Investigations
If you are an employer confronted with an allegation of misconduct in the workplace, the choices you make could have far-reaching consequences. One of the best decisions an employer can make is to retain a neutral investigator to conduct an efficient and comprehensive investigation to determine whether misconduct occurred.
At The Strause Law Group, our attorneys utilize their employment law experience to identify areas where an employer may be vulnerable. Sharing this insight allows our clients to remedy problems before they become liabilities. Moreover, our lawyers have helped Kentucky employers navigate tricky legal issues, such as preserving the attorney-client privilege, avoiding retaliation claims, maintaining confidentiality, and preserving and dealing with evidence.
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
- Misconduct by employees, which may include violence, bullying or performance issues
- Breach of confidentiality
- Breach of covenants not-to-compete
Seasoned employers recognize the benefits associated with retaining a skilled lawyer. If ever called to testify, an unbiased attorney investigator will generally have more credibility than an internal employee investigator who may be loyal to the employer.
An outside investigator can provide not only a detailed report of what occurred but also a legal opinion of any violations of federal or state laws and recommendations for the steps that should be taken to address these issues. As your advocate, we will take the time necessary to examine all aspects of your employment issue before proposing a course of action.
