To defend against charges of harassment and discrimination, the EEOC opines that "...Whoever conducts the investigation should be well-trained in the skills that are required for interviewing witnesses and evaluating credibility..." - Equal Employment Opportunity Commission "Enforcement Guidance on Vicarious Employer Liability for Unlawful Harassment by Supervisors"

Further, employee lawsuits increasingly focus on the quality of the organization's investigations, and many courts have made it clear that an effective, unbiased investigation is one of the best weapons against liability in employment litigation.

This comprehensive workshop will provide the skills necessary to conduct effective internal investigations that produce objective results and withstand scrutiny in subsequent litigation. Using a comprehensive hands on approach, participants build "real life" skills by learning how to:

  • Take a complaint
  • Develop an investigation plan
  • Interview witnesses
  • Reach a conclusion

Working through a case study culled from actual litigation, participants will practice all of these skills with the aid and guidance of talented attorney-facilitators.

Please register early as attendance is limited to 45 participants.
