Question: As an HR professional, how do you handle a complaint from an employee that a co-worker or manager is taking credit for her work?

Answer: Relatively few ideas in the workplace are the product of one individual as there are usually many people involved in the process. Some even feel managers and employees should not be concerned with receiving credit for work activities because they are serving the collective interests of the organization.
