SEXUAL HARASSMENT & DISCRIMINATION

The decision to investigate claims of sexual harassment or discrimination violations, are no longer a matter of managerial discretion. In addition, investigations that are haphazardly or superficially conducted will likely not shield the company from economic loss. It is clear that faulty investigations can lead to judgments in favor of not only the victims, but also alleged transgressors whose terminations are the result of insufficient evidence. Firms must also consider the economic risk of not promptly investigating informal allegations that do not rise to the level of a formal complaint.
