How do I know if I have to do an investigation?
Once your company is aware that inappropriate behavior may be taking place, an investigation must be performed.
Can an investigation create more liability?
Employers can be held liable for what they should have known. Therefore, conducting an investigation can help mitigate and protect an employer from incurring further liability.
Do we need to hire an outside party for the investigation to be objective?
Although using an outside party is allowed, it can be difficult and expensive to locate an external resource in a timely manner. Employers may certainly conduct their own investigations.
