Investigations of Allegations

Investigations of Allegations

Whether it is age discrimination, sexual harassment, or other insults – often when an accusation is made, the person doing the investigation/evaluation assumes guilt and looks for proof to find it.  I work at being neutral – and when I train others I train them to look for evidence for both innocence as well as guilt.  I often find that what really happened was meant differently from the manner in which it was accepted – and again mediation, instead of punishment solves the problem better – and allows for all potential collateral damage (other people in the organization being upset by the decisions) to be minimized.
