Workplace Investigations - Avoiding this Litigation Landmine

Webinar Details$219

Some laws require an investigation. Other laws require investigations as a means for an employer hoping to limit their legal liability. As such, investigations are a common and necessary function of HR.

In theory, investigating sounds easy but in reality, more often is not. Every investigation is different and it’s an unusual investigation when you have a single, simple complaint and every employee involved is factual and cooperative.
