Harassment and discrimination – whether based on sex, gender, age, race, religion, ethnicity, or disability – will not be tolerated in today’s workplace. Sadly however, allegations of misconduct are frequently leveled against senior executives by insecure or disgruntled employees who may harbor ulterior motives and whose accusations lack any basis in fact or in law.
Nevertheless, whether founded or unfounded, companies are required to aggressively investigate each and every discrimination or harassment claim. These internal investigations can be brutal. Internal investigations frequently lack due process, and can cause significant damage to personal and professional reputations and on-the-job efficacy, as well as inflict considerable financial harm. Our executive employment attorneys have many years of experience representing executives targeted in discrimination and harassment cases. We are sensitive to the awkwardness and embarrassment executives typically face in such predicaments, and offer our protection and support. Our attorneys ensure that your rights are respected and strive to minimize your discomfort at each stage of the investigative process, helping you emerge as unscathed as possible.
