What to Do If Your Business is Facing False Employee Claims

February 20, 2019

There are many instances in which your business might face false employee claims. Accusations ranging from sexual harassment to fraud can put your managers and your company at risk of lawsuits and criminal charges. How you handle false employee claims will affect the ultimate outcome of any court cases. It is important that you respond appropriately.

Firing or Suspending the Employee

Disgruntled employees are often no longer employed, but sometimes you may face false claims from current employees. When this happens, your first inclination may be to fire or suspend the employee in question. In some instances, this can hurt your case.

Instead of immediately issuing a termination or suspension, you should first contact an attorney for advice. An experienced attorney can advise you whether or not firing or suspending the employee is appropriate. At times, a suspension with pay may be preferable to termination. Only a corporate attorney can analyze the situation and determine the best way to proceed.

Contact an Attorney Immediately

As soon as an employee lodges a claim against your company, you should contact an attorney before taking any other actions. Regardless of the type of claim being made, your first priority is to protect the business. Even if you are certain that the claims made by the employee are false, you should not proceed without an attorney.

If you are facing false employee claims for wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, fraud, or any other legal or criminal issue, contact us today for a consultation. We can help you protect your business from detrimental financial costs and legal recrimination.
