TRUE OR FALSE: Workplace Investigations

Oct 30, 2023

RUE OR FALSE- The company does not need to investigate an employee complaint of harassment because the employee asked to keep the information confidential and not to escalate it.

From an employment lawyer who has litigated hundreds of cases, let’s see how this typically plays out.

Employee makes a complaint to you (the manager or executive).

Employee asks you not to say anything. You reluctantly agree.

Harassment continues and goes unresolved.

The people who are able to stop the harassment (CEO, HR, business owner) are unaware of the harassment because it went unreported.

Harassment causes employee to become depressed and miss work.

Employee is fired because she has low productivity and is missing work.

Employee sues for harassment and retaliation. Company has to pay $200k+ to defend the lawsuit and possibly pay a settlement.

Don’t be this company. Establish a relationship with an employment lawyer NOW, so when these employee issues come up (which they will) you will have a trusted legal advisor to guide you.
