Investigating Workplace Misconduct: Get It Right Without Getting Sued

Duration: 60 minutes

Most organizations understand their duty to carefully investigate and document serious employee complaints, like harassment or bullying. Unfortunately, many don’t bring that same level of rigor to investigations involving theft, fraud, vandalism, substance use, social media abuse, and violations of company policy.

That’s a problem, because a poorly handled investigation can turn into a legal nightmare. (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

In this boot camp webinar, you’ll learn tested and proven techniques for conducting workplace misconduct investigations the right way, including planning the investigation, interviewing witnesses, collecting and documenting evidence, and producing a final report.

To help keep your company out of court, and make sure you have air-tight documentation if you DO get hit with litigation, this intensive training course will teach HR professionals and supervisors best practices for fair, compliant and properly-documented investigations that decrease exposure to liability.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After attending this session, you will know how to:

  • Determine if an investigation is necessary, if formal or informal techniques should be used, and who should be involved
  • Interview all involved parties in a way that solicits reliable information, even from unwilling participants. 
  • Properly document the investigation process
  • Perform workplace searches in a legally safe way
  • Determine and document the credibility of each person involved 
  • Reach an impartial conclusion based on the evidence gathered
  • Select the appropriate action based on the results of the investigation
  • Write a formal, legally sound final report
