Workplace Investigations



When the HR department receives a complaint, or something seems suspicious, one of the first steps is to determine whether an internal investigation is warranted or not. Usually, the answer is yes. An investigation is required after an employee files a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or a lawsuit alleging employment discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, defamation or retaliation. A workplace investigation is also advisable when there could be violations of company policy, criminal behavior, theft of property or regulatory compliance issues.

The Benefits Of A Workplace Investigation

There are many things that an independent investigation will deliver to your business. Most importantly, it is a great time and money saver, as well as insuring peace of mind.

Independent third-party investigations are guaranteed to be impartial. They won’t have to take into consideration existing relationships or office gossip; they will only collect evidence and use that evidence to make a balanced and neutral finding.

The benefit of an independent party is also that they will provide an outsider perspective. They won’t necessarily know the ins and outs of your business, but this is a blessing in disguise. You may find yourself overlooking things because of how you’ve always run your business, but a third party will not have the same distractions. They will follow all the proper protocols.

You can also rely on independent investigators to be a wealth of knowledge, as it is their job to know everything and anything about workplace investigation processes. They will also be there to answer any questions you may have, so you will not only be acting on your behalf but also will educate you on the investigation process.

One of the most important benefits is that an independent management consultant with specialist skills in the legislation, psychology and the process, will have extensive experience in investigating all types of incidents, minor or major, and you can rest easy that they will know what exactly what they’re doing. The industry knowledge and experience they have will be invaluable to your business.
