Why Should you Attend
When it comes to investigations it's a minefield out there. So, it's imperative to know both what to do as much as what not to do. Making the right decision often turns on the quality of the investigation and especially how it was conducted because a flawed investigation can expose the employer to a significant and costly legal challenge. However, when done correctly, an investigation provides early identification of current or potential workplace issues and the opportunity to prevent such issues from repeating which can result in better business operations and higher levels of productivity regardless of what's being investigated. Therefore, this webinar will provide the participant with tools to be able to safely/properly navigate the minefield and get the most out of their investigations.
