The Benefits of Proper Workplace Investigations 

Workplace investigations are designed to gather facts and information in response to a complaint or allegation. Situations that may warrant such an investigation include claims of discrimination, sexual harassment, safety violations, fraud, misappropriation, and other unlawful acts. 

A properly conducted investigation can help you: 

  • Understand the strength and merit of the claim 
  • Choose the best course of action for responding to the claim 
  • Foster trust and positive relations between employees and management 
  • Prevent similar situations from arising in the future 
  • Establish credibility with future potential arbiters  

An improperly conducted investigation can expose you to liability on two fronts—the initial claim, and your response to it. Hiring an experienced firm to carry out an independent investigation can reduce your risk of exposure to such liability. 

Why Are External Workplace Investigations Better? 

You can entrust your workplace investigation to your HR department or other internal team, but this approach comes with potential pitfalls. Employees summoned to testify may be reluctant to speak freely if they are under the impression their employment depends upon giving the “right answer.” No matter how impartial and professional your internal team is, the mere suspicion of bias could cast lasting doubt on the investigation’s findings. 

With an impartial Charlotte workplace investigations attorney handling your review, you can avoid such misgivings. If this dispute eventually reaches the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Retaliatory Employment Discrimination Bureau, or other government body—or even a judge or jury—every aspect of your internal investigation will be scrutinized closely.  

A record of a clear, thorough and impartial investigation can only bolster your credibility. 

Role of a Charlotte Workplace Investigations Attorney 

We will handle all aspects of your workplace investigation, including reviewing the claim, interviewing witnesses, examining your existing training and protocols, and preparing a detailed report. 

The visibility of a neutral and competent investigation is important throughout this entire process. Employees must be confident that the investigator they are working with is seeking the facts and the truth, and not simply marking off due diligence checklists. 

Moving forward, we can draw upon our findings to recommend courses of action regarding disciplinary measures, litigation strategies, and changes to your policies and practices.
