As outlined in our earlier posts, business leaders are subject to increasing scrutiny in light of the national dialogue happening right now. This movement is not limited to the arena of celebrities and politicians. Does your business know what to do if allegations are lodged against your CEO or other critical managers?   

Given the spotlight being shined on these issues, and the importance of ensuring a safe work environment free from unlawful discrimination, we have prepared a series of blog posts focused on relevant considerations for employers. So far, we’ve discussed the basics of required anti-harassment policies and reporting procedures. We’ve also covered a number of considerations when it comes to implementing those policies, to ensure your practices conform to the written policies and procedures. Now we’ll shift our focus to discuss some steps to take when issues come to light. Below we outline some considerations as you approach investigations into potential workplace problems.
