Effectively investigating employee misconduct and resolving employee complaints is now more important than ever. Government agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, the Department of Labor and the National Labor Relations Board are searching for opportunities to fine and sue employers for conduct that could have been prevented or mitigated by an effective internal investigation. Plus, upset employees are more likely to sue than ever before. In this briefing, we will discuss how to conduct an effective and efficient investigation, from having the proper process in place and properly documenting your actions, to resolving the complaint and reducing the risk of litigation. These step-by-step tips will allow you to protect your organization by confidently performing even the most complicated investigations. Specifically, we will discuss:

  • Strategically using the attorney-client privilege to protect you and your company;
  • Planning the investigation process before you start, to enhance its effectiveness;
  • Defining the purpose and scope of the investigation;
  • Determining how, when, and in what order to interview witnesses to uncover the truth;
  • Reaching a conclusion that is accurate and legally defensible;
  • Conveying the findings to those involved and management; and
  • Acting on the investigation's findings to resolve the problem and prevent future issues.
