Conducting workplace investigations is a tool for companies who need to uncover the truth about complaints of discrimination or harassment in the workplace. However, there are pitfalls to conducting investigations.
On Tuesday, May 11 at 2 p.m. CST, Gary Savine, principal, Savine Employment Law, Ltd. will join a panel of attorneys to discuss how to conduct an effective workplace investigation.
“I know What You Did Last Summer: Workplace Investigations,” is a webinar that answers questions about conducting workplace investigations. This webinar is offered annually by Financial Poise ™ in conjunction with West LegalEdCenter™ as part of its series, “Protecting Your Employee Assets: The Life Cycle of The Employment Relationship.”
“Discrimination or harassment issues can set up the investigative process,” says Gary Savine, “To be prepared, HR professionals should know the workplace investigation process and bring together all stakeholders in the company to make sure there’s a game plan for workplace investigations.”
Given the issues and the potential for a costly, negative outcome, workplace investigations are an aspect of employment that companies will want to invest the time in understanding thoroughly.
The seminar covers what can lead to investigations, when to conduct an investigation, as well as what steps to take and how to document the investigative process.
