Employee lawsuits often focus on the quality of employer investigations and the skills of those who conduct them. Were the investigators well trained? Did they gather relevant facts and make objective determinations? During this two-day program, you’ll acquire and use the skills needed to conduct effective investigations.
DAY 1 -- Build Your Toolkit
Look into the reasons—laws and HR practices—for conducting investigations and what to do before you start. You’ll be able to:
• Identify who should investigate what, when and why
• Outline the anatomy of an investigation
• Interview and handle reluctant witnesses
• Prepare documentation that holds up in court
DAY 2 -- Put Your Tools to Use
Apply your knowledge from day 1 and practice, practice, practice. You’ll:
• Conduct a mock investigation--interview a complainant and witness, and question a respondent
• Weigh evidence and arrive at a fair determination
• Write an investigative report
• Prepare for corrective action based on findings
