Q & A – How should I respond to a complaint of discrimination?

Q. How should I respond to a complaint of discrimination?

A.  All complaints must be investigated. An employer’s investigation must be prompt and thorough and conducted by an unbiased party. Once all relevant evidence has been gathered, the employer must decide what action will be taken in response. Where inappropriate or potentially unlawful behavior is found, the employer must take appropriate action designed to correct the behavior and prevent it from happening again.
