In addition to frequently acting as mediators in employment matters, we regularly conduct investigations of allegations of workplace wrongdoing. We have conducted workplace investigations for national and international corporations, small businesses, public entities, educational institutions, hospitals, and non-profit organizations.
Our experience has been particularly helpful where the allegations involve sensitive claims against high-level executives. We have investigated complaints ranging from individual allegations of sexual harassment and retaliation to claims of systemic age and gender discrimination. Indeed, our workplace investigations are so well-regarded that a national corporation enlisted us to train its human resources employees on how to conduct internal investigations.
We conduct workplace Investigations of claims such as:
- Harassment and Discrimination Complaints including Age and Disability (and/or perceived Disability) Race, National Origin and Ethnic Origin Sexual Orientation (and/or perceived Sexual Orientation), Marital Status, Civil Union Status
- Retaliation Complaints
- Employee Misconduct
