Employee complaints of discrimination, harassment and retaliation in the workplace have been on the rise over the past years. Employers and administrators must be ready to respond to these types of claims.

In the event of a lawsuit or a federal or state audit, employers must also be able to show that they took prompt steps to investigate whether the complaint was founded and then be able to demonstrate that they took appropriate action based on the results of their investigation. An employer’s decision to investigate complaints also sends a strong message that it is committed to the fair treatment of its employees.
