Workplace Investigations (Virtual)
October 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
- This event has passed.
Employers should be prepared to conduct fair and impartial workplace investigations into employee complaints and allegations of discrimination, harassment, and other forms of misconduct at all levels of the organization.
Though workplace investigations have always been crucial, their importance has been thrust to the forefront of the current cultural discussion between the #metoo and #timesup movements as well as the Black Lives Matter movement. Given the current emphasis on these issues, as well as Oregon’s new Workplace Fairness Act, employers should both expect and encourage their employees to come forward regarding company-wide, systemic discrimination and harassment issues, as well as individual incidents of discrimination, harassment, and other forms of misconduct.
These allegations should be taken seriously and should be met with prompt and thorough investigations, as meaningful investigations are an asset to both employers and employees. In this interactive training, we will discuss spotting and handling an initial complaint, selecting an internal or external investigator, fact-finding, interviews, findings and conclusions, documentation, and action/resolution.
Join the HR Annie Team and Christine Slattery from Slattery Legal Solutions as we break down everything you need to know workplace investigations.
3:00-4:00PM – Presentation
4:00-4:30PM – Q&A
A replay of this workshop will be available to registrants for one week following the live event.
