Workplace investigations require a highly trained, seasoned investigator with an understanding of the Federal and State laws which form the framework for these type of investigations. The investigator must be sensitive to all the emotions that are many times tied to these investigations, yet direct and assertive enough to obtain the evidence from the parties and witnesses. These investigations require the investigator be able to assess credibility and to weigh that with other evidence against the allegations and counter-allegations of the parties to arrive at conclusions that are supported by the evidence. Ms. Yocum has been a member of the Association of Workplace Investigators since its inception and attends the yearly conferences and continuing education seminars to stay abreast of changes in the laws as well as to continue to hone her skills as a workplace investigator. She has conducted workplace investigations for private companies as well as municipalities on issues such as sexual harassment and discrimination, religious discrimination, gender discrimination and hostile work environment. Ms. Yocum has also assisted clients in addressing allegations of violations of company policies and conducting management assessments to provide insight to clients to address departmental issues.
