    2-Hour Virtual Seminar on Workplace Investigations 101: How to Conduct your Investigation Like a Pro

    When we think of workplace investigations, the most common thought is that of investigating harassment complaints.

    But workplace investigations are often necessary to discover, prevent and address other problems – such as theft, safety or OSHA issues, retaliation, vandalism, substance abuse, social media violations, company policy violations, and so on.

    As an employer you have a duty to investigate, and as an employee, you have an obligation to cooperate with the investigative process. But what if you have a recalcitrant complainant, wrongdoer or witness?

    You know that documentation and writing a final report are critical aspects of an investigation process – and should begin as soon as an employee makes a complaint.

    But do you know how to document the critical elements of a report so that you can minimize your liability? One of the first questions you need to consider is whether the complaint requires a full-blown formal investigation or a less formal resolution because the complaint is a minor policy violation.

    Do you know what steps to take if you need to search an employee’s desk, computer, smart phone or locker? And when should you include legal counsel, and what evidence do you need to gather?

    Join this webinar by industry veteran Susan Strauss, who will answer all these questions – and teach you the art and science of conducting an investigation. Strauss will walk you through the best practices on how to conduct a fair and impartial investigation, and reduce your organization’s risk of liability.
