Today I discuss workplace investigations with employment law attorney Dan Stern. We discuss when a complaint warrants an investigation, how to determine who should conduct an investigation, and dealing with complainants, witnesses, and the accused. It is an interesting conversation with takeaways for those conducting their first investigation and seasoned workplace Columbos.
