Now, more than ever, employers must be prepared to promptly and effectively respond to complaints of workplace harassment and/or discrimination. Often, that requires knowing when and how to conduct an internal investigation. Given the significance of the issues often at stake and the potential for a negative outcome (attorneys’ fees, high dollar settlement, negative PR), learning on the fly is not a viable option when undertaking an investigation. This program covers a host of questions, including what sort of issues should be investigated, who should conduct the investigation, what steps should you take and in what order, who should be interviewed, what sort of documents should be created and how do you close out the investigation? It also explores the investigation process and provides guidance from a seasoned investigator as to how to handle the many issues that you will often confront during the course of an investigation.
