    Program Description:

    The presentation will focus on the best practices for conducting effective investigations into complaints of all types (discrimination, retaliation, harassment, wage/hour, unfair treatment, health or safety concerns, etc.). We will review pre-investigation considerations, interviewing suggestions, tips for documenting the investigation, and how to best conclude the investigation. In addition, I will discuss a post-investigation considerations and how to handle tricky situations.
