    8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. Registration/Light Breakfast
    9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. Education Program: Conducting Workplace Investigations


    Employers are legally obligated to investigate complaints (harassment, discrimination, retaliation, safety, ethics, etc.) in a timely manner. Beyond any legal mandate, an investigation of who, why, what and how enables an organization to make intelligent decisions about how best to respond to and resolve the situation. 

    As stewards of the process, it is imperative HR ensures the integrity of the investigation (fairness, transparency, mitigation of risk and adherence to all legal requirements).

    This session covers legal requirements governing workplace investigations and informs participants about best practices in conducting investigations, including the following:

    • How to determine when a formal investigation is necessary
    • Step by step guide to the investigation process, including intake, planning, interviews, reaching a conclusion, making a recommendation, communicating findings and understanding the appropriate and legal way to handle documentation.
