Today, more than ever, how employers respond to employees’ concerns about their workplaces is critical, due to the rise of social movements like #MeToo and Black Lives Matter. Ensuring that employee concerns are promptly, impartially, and thoroughly investigated is not only required by law; it is also essential to establishing legal defenses, preserving the attorney-client privilege, and implementing corrective measures to rehabilitate employee morale and mitigate future claims or lost productivity.
