What information do I need to have?

In order to conduct a thorough investigation, we ask that you provide as much detail as you can about the incident. Including who was involved, time, location, witnesses, and if there are any photographs or communications we should see. If you don't have all this information, don't worry, just provide what you can.

May I submit a report anonymously?

If you choose to submit an anonymous report, it will be sent to your employer without any personal information. Your employer may ask Work Shield to conduct the investigation and provide resolution recommendations to the employer, but it is not guaranteed.

How do I know my report is not tampered with?

Each report is a PDF that is timestamped with its submission. Anyone who accesses the report with Adobe Reader can verify that it was not altered after the date and time stated in the PDF.

Is my employer responsible?

If left untreated after notification, yes. For example, if a supervisor harasses you and this results in a hostile work environment, your employer may be liable unless it can demonstrate that:

  • It reasonably and promptly tried to correct the harassing behavior;

  • You unreasonably failed to take advantage of any preventive or corrective opportunities available (ie - you should report concerns to Work Shield).

Who handles my investigation?

Work Shield and its team handle each investigation. We partner with Work Shield Certified legal professionals who manage the investigation process and provide resolution recommendations with sincerity and without bias.

Is there a timeframe for reporting an incident?

It's always best to report an incident as soon as possible after it occurs. This allows us to capture as many of the details as possible. If an incident occurred a while back, we still recommend submitting a report, and Work Shield will investigate as thoroughly as possible.
