Investigation vs Mediation

Investigation versus mediation. Several factors are involved in determining whether you should do an investigation versus whether you should do a mediation. First consider the allegation. If the allegation is in regards to an alleged policy violation, particularly if the allegation is serious or could otherwise be determined to be a violation of the law if an outside agency was involved, this is likely an issue for investigation.

If on the other hand, the issue stems from a personality conflict, an issue with trust, or if the issue relates in any other work-related disagreement, this is likely an item for mediation. If you aren’t sure if your particular situation should be addressed via an investigation or through mediation, we can provide you with a recommendation.
