As an employer, it can be one of the most unsettling experiences possible to hear that your business has experienced violence within, involving employees against one another. For most small- to medium-sized businesses, a poorly handled incident involving workplace violence can lead to dangerously costly litigation and outcomes that put their very existence at risk.
Even large organizations are often guilty of carelessness when it comes to workplace violence. Frequently, for instance, investigations are mandatory; businesses get into legal trouble by neglecting to investigate at all.
If you don’t have a great deal of experience investigating and dealing with workplace violence, you need to bring professionals in who do.
Why you need the professionals at Accurate Investigations
In-house workplace violence investigations fail all the time — responsibility for such investigations is usually handed over to the head of human resources, who simply doesn’t have the training necessary. The head may not reach out to the aggrieved employee as early as possible to calm tensions down; his investigation may be a biased one and he may fail to document key pieces of information, maintain confidentiality or to resolve contradictory statements. Often the accused is not given the opportunity to respond.
These mistakes would happen to anyone without experience inworkplace violence investigations. Everything changes, though, once you bring the professionals at Accurate Investigations in. We offer you the involved guidance that your business deserves and then take over.
