What do you do if allegations of misconduct arise at work?

Common concerns may include:

  • Internal Theft –Do you have unexplained losses?
  • Drug Abuse – Is someone displaying concerning behavior?
  • Violence – Has someone assaulted or threatened to assault another person?
  • Harassment – Is someone being made to feel uncomfortable?
  • Discrimination – Is someone a protected class alleging different?
  • Fraudulent Workers’ Compensation Claims – Does someone’s injury not align with their claim?
  • Other issues damaging to your company’s reputation – Is your company getting poor reviews?

Think about the consequences of not being able to control the situation – the impact on employees and morale, the time spent, resources used, financial losses, tarnished company culture, and the bad press associated with your brand name. A thorough investigation to collect the facts and gain an understanding of what has occurred is critical.

Consider acting fast, selecting the right investigators, maintaining confidentiality and credibility, and containing retaliation attempts. The solution is conducting a legal and discreet workplace investigation with a trusted neutral third-party fact finder like Frasco® Workplace Investigations.
