Whether it’s allegations of favoritism, harassment, or unethical conduct, an efficient and impartial investigation can help employers root out actions that are harming the company and can provide evidence to support the company’s decision. All too often investigations are conducted without a clear plan and assigned team, leading to conflicting results and a poor defense in litigation. A bad investigation can often lead to sanctions or punitive damages later in litigation – a situation far worse than conducting no investigation at all. Lawyers at Troutman Sanders have handled numerous investigations of all different types of alleged workplace misconduct and can help guide employers around potential landmines in managing workplace investigations.
