HR is legally required to thoroughly investigate every complaint of unlawful conduct that crosses your desk, whether it’s serious or laughable.
And while you need to investigate in a timely manner, you run the risk of cutting some key corners if you act too quickly. At the same time, you want to limit the liability of keeping the guilty party on your payroll.
