​External Workplace Investigations in San Francisco, CA

Navigate complex workplace complaints with confidence.

California employment laws require an employer to conduct a “prompt and thorough” investigation of any alleged conduct. Failing to conduct an investigation after a claim leaves your business exposed to subsequent legal action. Different types of complaints require different initial responses. However, all employee complaints need to be taken seriously-regardless of whether it’s accusations of harassment, discrimination, retaliation, ethical impropriety, or other claims

Once the investigation is completed, it’s time to evaluate the entire matter. This may involve implementing a strategy to make the necessary corrections to address the gaps that left you vulnerable.
