COMPLEX WORKPLACE INVESTIGATIONS

Complex workplace investigations include issues beyond the individual circumstances of the allegation of  a human rights violation, for example.  Investigators provide insight on the broader context that contributed to the allegation. Recommendations include systemic changes in policies, procedures, staffing, and organizational structures. Race-based and sexual harassment complaints, for example, are frequently complex and difficult for employers to resolve in-house.  This challenge is especially so if the allegations are made against senior management who hold power within the organization.

These challenges can include:  Emotionally charged accusations • Mismanaged complexities • Bad-faith allegations • Well-meaning but misguided interventions • Unequal accountability • Intense intra-office politics • Forgotten organizational values.

For complex investigations, LISA TERYL, senior legal counsel and workplace lawyer at Teryl Scott Lawyers Inc., partners with investigators to engage with relevant stakeholders in the institution. Teryl Scott investigators take a relational approach to the investigation which expedites proceedings. These investigations can provide legal, policy and organizational recommendations in order to eliminate future risk and exposure.

LEGAL COSTS Simple and  complex investigation costs vary depending on how broadly and in-depthly they are commissioned. Depending on the length of the investigation, monthly flat fees can be provided to be cost-effective for the organization. Discounts are available for non-profits and smaller businesses. HST and any disbursements are additional costs.
