About the Event

Conducting Workplace Investigations - The Right Way

Workplace Investigations are complex and if not conducted properly, can create many issues for the organization you work for, including finding themselves in court defending an investigation that was not done correctly. 

Join us for an informative and hands-on one-day session in which the instructors will walk through each step of the investigation process using a case study. 

The instructors will share examples from their years of investigation experience and share with you best practices when conducting workplace investigations and what can go wrong if not done correctly.
