About the Program
Whether in response to an employee complaint or allegation, to improve employee relations, or to reduce potential exposure, most employers, will, at some point, need to conduct a workplace investigation. Knowing how to handle and analyze an investigation efficiently and effectively is critical to giving an employer the factual findings on which it may take appropriate action and addressing employee concerns. This nuts and bolts webinar will cover the basics for lawyers who are conducting workplace investigations for clients, or are counsel to an employer or otherwise assisting an employer with an internal or external investigation. Experienced employment lawyer Naomi Calla will discuss key decision points and considerations in the investigation process, as well as recent developments and advice for conducting investigations remotely as a result of COVID-19. Topics include:
- golden rules of investigations
- avoiding common investigation pitfalls
- confidentiality and privacy
- weighing evidence
- handling difficult behaviours
- assessment of credibility
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a seasoned workplace investigator as she reviews the essential elements of effective workplace investigations – from determining when an investigation needs to take place to documenting your findings, and dealing with post-investigation matters.
