Neutral Third-Party Investigations
Outsourcing workplace investigations benefits a company by foreclosing significant legal liabilities that can result from:
Bias resulting from personal relationships between an accused and an existing employee tasked with investigating a workplace incident;
Fear of reporting/complaining due to possible censure/ostracism and/or job loss;
Lack of formal, consistent process from the complaint procedure to the uniformity of the investigation to ensure consistency and processes that will hold up under legal scrutiny, testimony, and examination;
Improperly handled investigations, which decrease employee morale and cause employee turnover; and
Lack of know-how and/or investigative experience.
