Successful workplace investigations are complex undertakings. They are time-consuming and fraught with enormous potential for legal liability. When done properly, they combine an intricate mixture of skill and experience. Those who attempt them without an adequate understanding of their fundamentals are recklessly naive.
Employers are held responsible for conducting a thorough and prompt review of employee complaints. However, investigations that are managed internally face several challenges. Employees routinely perceive them as biased, and Human Resource Professionals can be placed in an awkward position, especially if senior-level or management personnel are involved.
Human Resource Professionals also have a vested interest in protecting the important working relationships they have with client groups and often don’t have the resources they need to conduct these time-sensitive investigations. Lacking an effective process, Human Resource Professionals can often spend more time and resources than necessary, produce inconsistent results, and create unnecessary liabilities for those they serve.
