We are excited to share the next installment of our video series, Conducting Workplace Investigations | Step #8: Assess Your Results. This series, 10 Steps Every Company Should Take When Conducting Workplace Investigations, is intended to guide HR leaders faced with investigating a complaint between coworkers, such as harassment or inappropriate conduct, through the investigation process.

Each video in this series offers practical tips on everything from creating the investigation plan; interviewing relevant parties; and dealing with the aftermath of the investigation, including potential disciplinary actions taken against an employee.

In this video, Bass, Berry & Sims labor and employment attorney Tim Garrett outlines best practices when assessing the investigation results. These practices include gathering all relevant information and making an objective determination on credibility based on the interviews conducted. Tim also discusses the importance of going back and reviewing additional documentation, including social media and other public records.

Several attorneys in our Labor & Employment Practice Group are featured in this video series and offer great recommendations for navigating this tricky process.
