762 Top 10 Mistakes Made in an Investigation that Can Doom Them

Summary: Conducting an investigation of an employee is akin to handling a double-edged sword. Used properly, an effective investigation can correct employee misconduct, reduce the risk of lawsuits and, if a lawsuit is inevitable, tremendously assist the employer’s defense. A safety professional, however, must use the investigation tool carefully. A careless investigation could result in a lawsuit by the disgruntled employee and, in that lawsuit, provide evidence that can be used against the company. Lawsuits based on or with facts that reveal a botched investigation can cost the company thousands to millions of dollars.
