We conducted an internal investigation including one-on-one interviews of every employee. We conducted follow-up interviews with employees as necessary to clarify inconsistent statements. We prepared an extensive written report on the investigation results. We reviewed the report with management and made recommendations for resolving the complaint.
The investigation concluded that the employee complaints were unfounded. However, as the employee believed the basis for the complaints, we worked with the client to find an alternative work location for the employee so that his concerns were addressed to his satisfaction and the employee's productivity was maintained at no cost to the employer and no resultant administrative claims.
