Has an employee accused another employee or a manager of sexual harassment? Are employees claiming they should be paid overtime?
Conduct a prompt investigation
Anytime an employee alleges company wrongdoing or wrongdoing by another employee, vendor or customer you must be prepared to conduct a prompt investigation.
Conducting a prompt, thorough, and balanced investigation is imperative to adequately defend against government claims and charges. In addition, it offers a defense to discrimination lawsuits when done correctly and followed by appropriate action.
At the first notice of a claim or complaint by an employee, call MelderLaw. We’ll review the incident and consider whether an investigation should be conducted. Unusual employee behavior or conduct may also prompt you to consider an investigation.
