Why Should you Attend
While no employer wants to be accused of harassment but when an employer receives an allegation of workplace harassment, taking prompt and appropriate action is the employer's legal responsibility and all employers need to be armed with the knowledge of how to proceed should they find themselves in the position of having to defend themselves against a harassment charge. Employers must ensure they are properly prepared at the outset of an investigation to conduct effective and legally-compliant investigations into the harassment.

This webinar will teach you how to evaluate the scope of their internal investigations, how to conduct a legally and psychologically-effective workplace probe, how to document steps taken along the way, and how to insulate the organization from subsequent lawsuits. Additionally, how to ensure all parties are treated fairly during the process and be sensitive to how the organization's process is communicated and implemented. Participation in this webinar will assist you in gaining the confidence to conduct effective investigations.
