In-house attorneys, human resources professionals, and compliance officers are regularly called upon to investigate employee workplace complaints and allegations of corporate improprieties. This has significantly increased as a result of the #MeToo movement, which has empowered employees to speak out about their personal experiences with sexual harassment and other injustices they witness and experience in and around their professional environment. When is the duty to investigate triggered? Who should conduct the investigation? What makes an investigation effective? How will the investigation and its conclusions potentially be used during litigation?
