"My employee claims he’s being harassed - what do I do now?"

"We don't have the budget to hire someone to do an investigation, but I have no idea where to start."

"Is she going to file a lawsuit? Is some government agency going to come knocking on the door?"

Are you prepared to address claims of inappropriate behavior or policy violations in your workplace?
