Florida Workplace Investigations
with Attorney, Karly Wannos, AWI-CH
Employers are required to promptly investigate workplace complaints involving discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Employers are also required to take steps to prevent and correct any improper behavior. Workplace investigations require a complete understanding of employment laws and the ability to meaningfully engage with the employees involved. While some workplace investigations can be handled internally, certain complex or sensitive situations are best conducted by an employment law attorney- investigator, who is well versed in the law, and has litigated cases involving discrimination, harassment and workplace investigations.
The Wannos Law Firm provides prompt, independent and efficient workplace investigations in response to employee complaints of harassment, discrimination, retaliation and/or a serious policy violation. Karly Wannos attended the Association for Workplace Investigations (AWI) Training Institute and is an Association of Workplace Investigators Certificate Holder (AWI-CH).
