Conducting an Investigation
Supervisors are charged with ensuring that faculty and staff members are positive contributors to the Pepperdine community and act in accordance with the Code of Ethics and University Policy Manual. Supervisors are responsible to conduct informal or formal investigations with the appropriate parties in response to allegations whenever they are made aware of concerns. The University has an obligation to address all complaints in a timely manner, and the reference guide below provides step-by-step instructions and considerations for conducting workplace investigations. Supervisors are encouraged to speak with Human Resources regarding any questions or appropriate protocol in a particular setting.
