Workplace Investigations

As an HR Manager (or general manager of a small co-op without an HR function), your work focuses on preventing workplace issues or resolving them while they’re still small. But when serious issues do arise, it’s important to have someone experienced with investigations to do fact finding.  Even if you have the professional experience, when your boss or other high-level co-op managers are subjects of the investigation, your objectivity could be called into question. Then it becomes imperative to hire an external investigator to objectively get to the bottom of your personnel situation.

Let the HR experts at CDS Consulting Co-op do the work of a workplace investigation for you. CDS CC consultants have experience conducting workplace investigations, and the objectivity to keep personal considerations off of the table while pulling together a report of events from multiple sources. CDS CC consultants can conduct on-site or video-based interviews, prepare a report for the board, GM or HR, including recommendations based on your policies, Ends, and the law.

Contact CDS CC for investigations concerning:

  • Harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Nepotism
  • Favoritism
  • Non-compliance with policies or Ends
  • Entrenched personnel situations
