Hamilton Workplace Investigations

 

Hamilton workplace investigations are critical for employers for a number of reasons. Harassment complaints have negative impacts on the workforce:  increased absenteeism, increased disability costs, more grievances, decreased productivity, increased conflict among staff, high turnover, poor morale, and ultimately higher liability and legal costs. That’s why choosing the right Hamilton workplace investigator is key to a successful resolution of these workplace issues.

And that’s not all. Increased complaints of harassment, violence, and discrimination in the workplace also affect individual employees—and not in a good way. Hamilton workplace investigations are critical because the impact on victims can, in fact, be crippling: work-related stress and anxieties; violent, aggressive or tearful behaviour at work; self-esteem problems; decreased productivity; and other long-term consequences.
