Workplace problems and complaints carry serious legal and financial risks to a company—so it’s essential to act fast when you receive an employee complaint. But an ineffective or poorly handled investigation can land your company in even more trouble.
The Essential Guide to Workplace Investigations documents the 10 critical steps to legally and successfully investigate and resolve any type of workplace complaint or problem:
· deciding whether to investigate;
· taking immediate action, if necessary;
· choosing an investigator;
· planning the investigation;
· gathering evidence;
· evaluating the evidence;
· taking action;
· documenting the investigation; and
· following up.
This thoroughly revised, essential resource covers harassment, discrimination, workplace violence, employee theft, and, in a new chapter, drug and alcohol use. It also includes updated 50-state charts. It incorporates the latest legal developments including changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act and important decisions by the Supreme Court on age discrimination, age retaliation, and more.
The CD-ROM includes all forms along with helpful audio scenarios and sample interviews.
