Conducting an Employee Investigation with an HR Department of One
Presented by:
Susan Bassford Wilson
Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP

 
In the #MeToo era, accusations of workplace misconduct must be taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. Before a charge or lawsuit is filed, the employer almost always receives a complaint about the purported bad behavior or has reason to know of it. A good investigation can result in effective resolution of a harassment complaint, winning an unemployment claim, and even a successful defense of a discrimination charge or wrongful termination lawsuit. On the other hand, a bad investigation can have the opposite effect. Navigating these waters as an HR Department of One can be challenging.

Join us for practical discussion regarding:
  • Developing an investigation playbook
  • Avoiding determination pitfalls
  • Dodging retaliation claims
  • How investigations can help you learn from your company's past mistakes
