When an alleged serious transgression is reported by a manager, the ER team will analyze the merits of the claim by conducting a thorough workplace investigation.
An ER representative may either lead the investigation and/or refer the case to either the Office of Equity and Inclusion in the case of sexual harassment or a discrimination complaint.
If you are a manager and have questions regarding workplace investigations, call 5.2557.
The investigator may:
- gather and review all documentation and/or evidence;
- schedule interviews with the parties involved;
- evaluate all the facts objectively;
- write a report which includes recommended options to resolve the issue based on objective facts.
Common workplace investigations include:
- behavioral conflict;
- interpersonal conflict;
- reasonable suspicion;
