Workplace and Post-Secondary Investigations
Don’t leave inferences to be drawn when facts can be presented.
Harassment and discrimination is unlawful. Misconduct is disruptive. Employers and post-secondary institutions have a legal duty of care to protect workers and students. This duty may require your organization to investigate. Failure to investigate can result in costly legal jeopardy, scrutiny by regulators and government agencies wherein employees/students can lose faith in their organization’s ability to provide a harassment-free, productive and respectful workplace.

The deliberate and careful design of a precision-planned harassment investigation allows all of those involved to understand and have confidence in the process.
