Employee relations issues from HR perspective

Hello,

I am wondering how HR departments in your organization handle employee relations issues including harassment, usual complaints, code of conduct, work ethics etc.

In an ideal scenario, what should be an appropriate time for HR to intervene?

Re: Employee relations issues from HR perspective

Employee relations is an tricky area and employee approahes HR ideally for a reason since he would be uncomfortable  going to their chain of command and he could be involved and/or may be a cause of such an employee relations concern as well.
 
In such a case, it is advisable to talk to the employee to understand all details while investigating the matter of fact and documenting the same.
 
While you do this, please make sure you adhere to the companies policy when doing the  investigation.

I would rather recommend to involve the chain of command right from the beginning so the situation can be timed, controled and monitored should it go embarassing and awry in the interim.
