About The Event
Are you prepared to conduct a proper investigation? Will it comply with all Federal, State, and local laws and all your policies? Will that investigation be objective and respect all party’s rights? Will it be presented in a professional manner?
If done right an investigation can help get to the bottom of things. If done wrong, it all too often makes things worse. So, it pays to know how to do it right every step of the way. The challenge of complying with all applicable standards/regulations is to educate and update all who are responsible for conducting investigations within the organization. Otherwise, they may not have the tools or skill sets to be aware of all those obligations and responsibilities which in turn can lead to unintentional violations of law and challenges to the integrity and credibility of the investigation and its results/conclusions.
In short, this webinar can help you and your organization understands what’s required to conduct an effective and professional investigation while minimizing risk (financial, legal, damage to internal and external reputation, etc.).
