Workplace Investigations: Handling Employee Problems and Complaints

August 2017


On occasion in the workplace, serious issues will arise that either offend or endanger the safety of a company's employees. Perhaps you've heard a complaint or report of misconduct similar to the examples below.

  • "Every time I go into John's office, he's looking at pornography on the internet. It's really starting to offend me and other women in the office."
  • "We've finished our internal audit, and the numbers just don't add up. I think we may have a thief on our payroll."
  • "Mark has been really angry lately. He keeps talking about his gun collection, and yesterday he told me that 'management is about to get what's coming to them.' I'm afraid of what he might do."

A complete, impartial, and timely investigation will help determine the best course of action when confronted with situations such as these. In fact, a proper investigation is one of the most important tools for maintaining a safe and productive workplace, and keeping your company out of legal trouble.
