Bruce’s Summary: This author takes a different perspective in an age old issue of what happens when allegations are raised against, well let’s say those perceived as “special people” whether one who generates big revenue, key sports figures and/or heads of organizations. The author indicated that one common issue is “a company’s fail (ure) to create an atmosphere of truth telling.” As the author further indicated that just having conflict resolution policies and training is insufficient without also having an environment in which employees feel comfortable reporting issues and participating in investigations rather than actively being discouraged as in some of the examples given in this article. As we have said on numerous occasions, “there are no secrets,” someone always knows and yet, even today, there are people who will still try to protect those who abuse it the most. “None of the information contained herein should be construed as legal advice, nor are Calvin Associates consultants engaged to offer legal advice.
