The New York Mets plan to revamp their procedures for employees reporting legal and human resources complaints, as well as expand their anti-harassment policies, following an investigation by an outside law firm into workplace practices.
On Monday, Mets owner Steve Cohen announced the changes to team employees in an email obtained by The Athletic. Cohen's announcement comes after law firm WilmerHale conducted an investigation and spoke with 82 current and former team employees.
Among the changes, the club plans to "expand the scope of our anti-harassment and anti-discrimination policy to emphasize the overarching value of a safe and respectful workplace" and change how employees report concerns and receive support during any investigations. The Mets will ensure their legal and human resources departments "respond to complaints in a timely fashion, provide complainants with status updates and have close-out conversations with complainants and subjects at the conclusion of investigations."
