A prompt and effective workplace investigation has a number of key components. In a recent article published by the New Jersey Law Journal, entitled Addressing Employee Complaints, Susan Nardone outlines the guidelines an employer should follow for conducting an effective investigation, including:
- act quickly;
- select the right investigator;
- establish an investigation plan; and
- maintain proper documentation of the investigation.
