Top Ten Investigation Tips

November 17, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

It isn’t a question of IF, but rather a question of WHEN. No organization, regardless of size, location, policies and training programs, is immune from allegations of misconduct, sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, policy violations and other employee disputes. 
How you address those allegations can be the difference between fair and appropriate remediation… or a front-page headline! Participants will discover the top ten investigation dos and don’ts and learn how to implement a practical approach to conducting investigations that lead to successful resolutions.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the importance of appropriately timing the investigation and having a plan
  • Learn how to manage confidential information and distinguish between differing accounts
  • Implement specific steps to result in a successful resolution
