Learn how to conduct an investigation from complaint to closure with this interactive one-day web seminar.

Conducting Workplace Investigations:
A Step-by-Step Virtual Summit for HR Leaders

Conducting Workplace Investigations

A half-day web seminar coming Thursday, May 12
10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Central

An employee comes to you with a complaint. How do you conduct an investigation -- without placing your organization at risk for costly litigation?

It's easier than ever for an employee to turn a simple complaint into a full-blown discrimination or retaliation lawsuit. To protect your organization, you must have an effective strategy in place for every phase of the process -- from the moment you hear a concern to the days and weeks after your investigation is complete.

When you participate in this interactive live event, you'll benefit from role-playing best practice exercises for taking an initial compliant and interviewing witnesses. You'll learn a step-by-step approach to conducting investigations that uncovers the facts and leads to a successful resolution. And you'll learn now to prepare a final report that ties up loose ends and helps prevent the situation from re-igniting into costly conflict.
