Conducting Workplace Investigations

One of the most critical functions of human resources is to conduct fair, comprehensive, and legally compliant workplace employment investigations. Failure to conduct an appropriate investigation can result in crippling liability to an organization.  Our speaker, Keith Black, Founder and Principal at Employment Practices Outsourcing, will walk us through the best practices in addressing workplace investigations, whether the allegations are harassment, discrimination or other misconduct.

You will learn:

  • Investigation Basics for Human Resources
  • 7 Keys to an Effective Investigation

You will walk away feeling more confident about where to begin when you are faced with a workplace investigation, when to do it internally vs. when to consider an external investigator, how it should be done, how to write a report, and more.

Join us in this practical approach to workplace investigations.
