INVESTIGATIONS CAN BE POWERFUL TOOLS TO PREVENT DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT
A positive development in employment law is the increasing use of the facts gathered to improve both the workplace as well as future investigations. Investigating discrimination and harassment in the workplace can accomplish several goals:
• It helps determine the extent of any problem
• It ensures compliance with the decree, and
• It can prevent violations of law or policy
Further, employers can go beyond these objections and channel the information learned from investigations back into the workplace. Good results form when investigations findings are used to address problem areas in workplace operations, to help identify problem employees, to reveal areas in which employees need training, and strengthen internal investigations. Employers paying attention to trends and investigations may help save costly time and money in the future.
