We offer the following services:

    The goal is to ensure that harassment, discrimination and retaliation complaints are promptly and thoroughly investigated. Having outside counsel perform an effective investigation allows employers to make informed decisions, greatly reduces the likelihood of litigation and can significantly limit an employer’s liability for the underlying conduct. In the alternative, we can advise in-house personnel on how to conduct an effective investigation themselves.
