Employers are turning to independent investigators to perform workplace investigations as the Human Rights Code, Workers Compensation Act, and Personal Information Protection Act have created a complex regulatory environment for employers.
Employers are being held to increasingly higher standards when it comes to addressing workplace misconduct. Investigations into complaints of workplace harassment, bullying, and discrimination must be conducted quickly, impartially, and confidentially.
