Conducting Effective Workplace Investigations

SmithAmundsen, Indianapolis, IN; Webinar
 | 12:00PM - 1:15PM ET

Employee complaints come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from complaints of general unfairness and personality conflicts to allegations of severe and pervasive sexual harassment. It is essential that employers act quickly to investigate and address internally all complaints of harassment and discrimination.

A thorough investigation is often the backbone of an employer’s defense to employment-related legal claims. In some cases, a prompt and effective investigation can resolve the underlying problem entirely, preventing a lawsuit from ever being filed.

Join Suzanne Newcomb on Thursday, August 16 at noon ET as she discusses the nuts and bolts of conducting effective internal investigations and examines the legal, ethical, and privilege issues that surround them. Specifically, she will highlight:

  • Confidentiality and privilege concerns
  • Dealing with reluctant witnesses
  • Proper documentation of investigatory interviews and other facts
  • Methods of communicating investigation findings
  • Closing the investigation

Who should attend? HR professionals, managers, business owners, and in-house counsel.

We hope you can join us, whether in-person or via webinar!
