The Human Resources department of a major company contacts The Integrity Group to report that one of its employees has lodged a formal complaint alleging sexual harassment against a colleague, and this employee has also threatened to take legal action.
The Integrity Group makes a site visit and conducts a preliminary investigation, and determines that the facts as alleged indicate serious potential misconduct; it advises the company that a formal investigation should be carried out; such an investigation would, in addition to getting to the bottom of the matter, help limit the company’s legal liability that could otherwise result if it remained idle in the face of potentially serious legal claims.
Using its highly trained and experienced investigators, The Integrity Groupconducts a timely, thorough investigation including interviews with all relevant personnel within the company—from rank and file employees to senior management—in order to determine the facts; due to the serious nature of the allegations, the company’s legal counsel is also involved.
At the conclusion if its investigation, The Integrity Group issues a comprehensive written report to legal counsel which includes findings as to whether or not there as a breach of the organization’s policy, or a violation of the general law. The organization is now well-quipped to decide on the appropriate action.
