When an employee complains that they believe they have been subjected to discrimination, harassment or retaliation, employers must investigate these allegations and take prompt measures to address the allegations.
Employers may conduct investigations themselves or may retain attorneys to investigate allegations or discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. The handling of such an investigation can have a significant positive or negative impact on the company's ability to defend itself in a litigation regarding these allegations.
