Learn how to conduct a full and fair workplace investigation
Workplace complaints carry serious legal and financial risks to a company, so it’s essential to act fast when you receive an employee complaint. But an ineffective or poorly handled investigation can land your company in even more trouble than not performing one at all. In the era of #MeToo, it’s more important than ever to ensure your investigation is complete, impartial, and timely.

The book guides you through each step of an effective investigation, including:
- deciding whether to investigate
- taking immediate action, if necessary
- choosing an investigator
- planning the investigation
- interviewing witnesses
- gathering and evaluating the evidence
- taking action
- documenting the investigation, and
- following up.
