Bruce’s Summary: A Tennessee Court recently granted summary judgement for an employer because of its prompt and objective response to an employee’s sexual harassment complaint.

The Court’s judgement reinforces the fact that a prompt and reasonable investigation – internally or by an experienced third-party investigator – can help save an employer from liability. “None of the information contained herein should be construed as legal advice, nor are Calvin Associates consultants engaged to offer legal advice.
