About The Event

As whistleblower claims continue to rise, employers must understand how to investigate employee complaints timely and thoroughly. Employers must have procedures in place for internal investigations to foster a supportive work environment and address employee issues before they turn into a regulatory issue or the basis for litigation.

Employers must also ensure their management representatives understand how to effectively interact with a complaining employee after a grievance has been communicated, including dealing with performance issues in a manner that makes clear any adverse employment action is distinct from the employee’s complaint.

This webinar will cover areas to avoid when conducting internal investigations, how effective investigations can manage compliance risks, and investigation-related policies and procedures to help with a company’s organization and management.
