Join us for NPELRA’s Investigations Process Workshop on September 13 in Austin
Human resources and labor relations professionals are often called upon to conduct workplace investigations in the face of serious and sensitive allegations that range from claims of sexual harassment/other discrimination to allegations of workplace misconduct to major ethical questions. Yet few of us have had real training on how to conduct an investigation.
This workshop will explore the investigatory process and will cover who should conduct the investigation, legal issues to beware of, how to order and structure investigatory interviews, dealing with Garrity issues, and how to generate an end-product that will help your employer resolve what happened and what needs to be done.
The program will focus on identifying the key elements of an effective workplace investigation process and help attendees understand the importance of the process and the consequences if it is not done properly.
