Question of the Week

Updated: Feb 22, 2023


Question

An employee came to us with a harassment complaint but said they didn’t want us to do anything about it. Do we have to do an investigation?


Answer

Yes, you should still investigate the complaint. Not investigating could expose you to legal risk if more employees come forward with complaints, if the employee later decides to take their complaint to a state or federal agency, or if the harasser continues to harass. Aside from liability, creating a culture that feels safe and inclusive, and discourages harassment, requires acting when these issues arise.
