ONLINE: Workplace Investigations – Avoiding this Litigation Landmine

Employers across the US conduct employee relations investigations every day. These fact-findings uncover problems, hope to limit legal liability and solve employee relations problems. Some laws require an investigation. Other laws require investigations as a means for an employer hoping to limit their legal liability. As such, investigations are a common and necessary function of HR.

In theory, investigating sounds easy but in reality, more often is not. Every investigation is different and it’s an unusual investigation when you have a single, simple complaint and every employee involved is factual and cooperative.
