The Employment Practices Group is pleased to be able to offer businesses assistance in performing independent workplace investigations. In many situations, employers’ internal review processes are ill-suited to performing complete and unbiased investigations with respect to claims of workplace misconduct. Often, even the most well-intended internal investigation suffers from a perception of bias or predetermination. A well-constructed external review by an impartial investigator can mean the difference between experiencing a restored, productive work environment and defending a difficult lawsuit. Independent investigations are particularly useful in cases of sexual harassment complaints, discrimination claims, workplace misconduct and other circumstances where an impartial inquiry, review and reporting process is paramount.
