Many employers face costly lawsuits and human rights claims due to poor internal handling of employee harassment allegations. It is difficult for an internal investigation to be handled objectively by human resources departments, as there are internal relationships and political interests at play. It is a better strategy to engage a third-party, independent resource to lead a workplace investigation. Ideally, this individual has no existing history with the organization and can act on an impartial basis to interview the complainant, defendant, and witnesses.
Harassment and discrimination can also create a toxic workplace which can take years and hard work to recover from damaged trust.
