Conducting an effective internal investigation into allegations of employee misconduct will ultimately mean the difference between amicably resolving a dispute and thrusting your company into costly and protracted litigation. As case law and regulations continue to evolve concerning investigations (and HR’s role within them), it is pertinent that HR professionals use best practices in accordance with the law.
Through hypotheticals and case studies, you’ll leave the seminar able to apply investigative skills in practical and concrete ways. Learn how to:
• Gather evidence to determine whether misconduct occurred
• Implement effective questioning techniques
• Get “pay dirt” from the accused
• Assess credibility
• Prepare a report that will withstand a legal challenge
