Learning on the fly is not a viable option when undertaking a workplace investigation.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) May 11, 2018
If you have employees or advise companies with employees, this webinar series is for you! No employer—whether large, medium or small—is immune from the reach of federal, state and/or local employment laws and regulations. Now, more than ever, employers should consider taking a proactive approach to auditing their employment practices and policies so that they can better respond when issues arise. This Financial Poise PROTECTING YOUR EMPLOYEE ASSETS: THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE EMPLOYMENT RELATIONSHIP webinar series approaches the employer-employee relationship from beginning to end, with programs covering the most important steps along the way, including hiring and onboarding, policy and procedure development and training, wage and hour compliance, accommodating disabled employees, conducting investigations and considerations associated with ending the relationship.
The fifth episode of the series, I Know What You Did Last Summer: Workplace Investigations, airs on May 15th at 3:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Aaron Gelb of Conn Maciel Carey LLP. Mr. Gelb is joined by Rachel Ablin of Ablin Law, P.C., Charles A. Krugel of the Law Office of Charles Krugel, and Jennifer Marszalek of Havas Chicago Village/Havas.
Now, more than ever, employers must be prepared to promptly and effectively respond to complaints of workplace harassment and/or discrimination. Often, that requires knowing when and how to conduct an internal investigation. Given the significance of the issues often at stake and the potential for a negative outcome (attorneys’ fees, high dollar settlement, negative PR), learning on the fly is not a viable option when undertaking an investigation. This program covers a host of questions, including what sort of issues should be investigated, who should conduct the investigation, what steps should you take and in what order, who should be interviewed, what sort of documents should be created and how do you close out the investigation? It also explores the investigation process and provides guidance from a seasoned investigator as to how to handle the many issues that you will often confront during the course of an investigation.
The PROTECTING YOUR EMPLOYEE ASSETS: THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE EMPLOYMENT RELATIONSHIP Series is produced by Financial Poise.™ The final episode in the series is "It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye: Minimizing Risk When Terminating Employees," airing on June 19th at 3:00 PM CST.
