How far will my information travel?
“Almost any complaint that you make to HR is going to be shared with outside parties. The individual that you complain against must be given an opportunity to tell their side of the story. Witnesses may have to be interviewed. Supervisors may have to be notified to make changes to work schedules, seating, etc. during and after the investigation. It is rare that HR is able to investigate and resolve an employee complaint without sharing some part of the complaint with others.”
