Managing Internal Investigations
Gathering reliable information about employees and workplace incidents in order to make reasonable and informed employment decisions can be a challenge for employers. The scope and complexity of workplace investigations can vary depending on the issues and the number of people involved. While internal investigations often involve claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, theft, and/or misconduct, employers need to be prepared to address a range of novel issues that can include whistleblowing, fraud, and misappropriation of trade secrets. An ill-considered response to any of these issues will create a variety of problems for employers.

This webinar will provide best practice on preparing for and conducting internal investigations for a variety of workplace issues. We will also discuss appropriate investigation policies and procedures, pre-investigation planning, attorney-client privilege considerations, investigation tips and witness interviews, and post-investigation disciplinary measures.

This program is valid for 1.00 PDCs for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.
