October (10/6) – Best Practices for Handling Workplace Investigations

Now more than ever, employers are faced with combating workplace
conflict and potential harassment complaints during the pandemic and
remote work or hybrid work transitions. Not properly addressing employee
complaints or missteps in the investigation process can cause major
damage to your business. Not only is harassment illegal, legal claims and
lawsuits are extremely costly. What are the triggers to initiate a workplace
investigation? Do all complaints require a formal investigation?
In this session we will discuss the elements and proper steps to take when
conducting a workplace investigation. The workshop will also review what
an employer’s obligations are, best practices for investigating complaints
and steps to establish a workplace culture of trust and respect.
