SMM Law has extensive experience conducting thorough and impartial investigations for employers on a variety of workplace issues.
When there’s a complaint of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, or other violation of law, employers need to act quickly to investigate the complaint. One of the most effective actions an employer can take is hiring an experienced and neutral third party to conduct the investigation on its behalf.
Let us put our years of experience to work for your company. SMM Law can conduct swift, neutral, and confidential investigations into your workplace complaints, which will help your company correct the issue, establish a safe working environment, and reduce employer liability. We provide these comprehensive workplace investigations for internal complaints and allegations of:
- Criminal Activity by Employees
- Drug & Alcohol Use
- Employee Misconduct
- Equal Pay or Pay Disparity
- Hostile Work Environment
- Libel & Slander (Defamation)
- Non-Compete, Non-Solicitation & Confidentiality Provisions
- Sexual Harassment
- Violations of Company Policies
- Workplace Violence
The scope of our investigation is flexible based on a company’s particular needs, but always begins within an analysis of whether to investigate. If necessary, our team conducts witness interviews, reviews documents, evaluates the evidence, and produces an investigative report that includes findings and recommendations.
Our firm offers on-site investigations and can conduct interviews in person, by phone, at an off-site location, or via video conferencing.
If you wish to have the investigation conducted by an in-house manager or human resources professional, we can also provide legal guidance and support to your team. Regardless of the option you choose, SMM Law can give you peace of mind, address your issues in a timely manner, and help you achieve effective results.
Why hire SMM Law instead of having your employees conduct the investigation?
By hiring SMM Law to conduct your workplace investigations, you can rest assured that you’ll receive an objective evaluation of the issue. Additionally, hiring an outside firm to conduct your workplace investigation ensures that your employee investigator does not become a witness should the issue become a lawsuit. Lastly, our firm has extensive experience representing companies and business owners in employment litigation, so we know what to look for and the right questions to ask during the investigation. This guarantees that we complete the investigation in a thorough and cost-efficient manner.
