Workplace Investigations

In recent years, the law surrounding workplace harassment and discrimination has become increasingly important. All employers have an obligation to investigate allegations of harassment or other similar breaches of the Occupational Health and Safety Act or the Canada Labour Code. Failure to do so can result in significant penalties and other orders being levied against an employer. From a staff morale standpoint, failing to address issues of harassment or other health and safety issues in the workplace, can also take a toll, leading to loss of talent, and reduction in productivity. Initiating a timely investigation and getting experienced advice on these processes is key to their management.

At Nelligan Law we have lawyers who are experienced investigators and who can act as a neutral, third-party investigator for any claims you receive. Our team of lawyers can also act as your legal counsel throughout any investigation process, guiding you to ensure you’re meeting all your legal obligations and helping you find the right third-party investigator for whatever your needs may be.
