Janet Hayes

This week Janet Hayes, a Shareholder in the Knoxville office, presented at the Knoxville Bar Association’s annual Law Practice Today Expo on “Workplace Investigations: Navigating the Treacherous Trail to Truth.”  The session explored investigation traps, offered tips, and discussed best practices for effectively handling sensitive issues in the workplace.  Ms. Hayes is an advocate for employers and businesses across the state and her practice focuses on employment and appellate law.  She drafts client-specific employee handbooks, policies, and employment contracts to provide legal compliance while enhancing business success. Employers frequently call upon Ms. Hayes to conduct formal investigations of employee complaints and allegations of internal wrongdoing.  Her investigations have included allegations of sexual harassment, age discrimination, embezzlement, misappropriation of time, abuse of leave policies, and generalized claims of mismanagement and unprofessional conduct.
