DURHAM, N.C. (PRWEB) August 08, 2018
AudioSolutionz, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host the live webinar, “Workplace Investigations 101: How to Conduct Your Investigation Like a Pro”, with industry veteran Dr. Susan Strauss, Ed.D. on Thursday, August 16, 2018 at 1:00 PM ET.
In workplace investigations, the most common thought is that of investigating harassment complaints, but workplace investigations are often necessary to discover, prevent and address other problems – such as theft, safety or OSHA issues, retaliation, vandalism, substance abuse, social media violations, company policy violations, and so on. It is an employer’s duty to investigate, and the employees have an obligation to cooperate with the investigative process, but what does one do if one has a recalcitrant complainant, wrongdoer or witness?
Documentation and writing a final report are critical aspects of a workplace investigation process – and should begin as soon as an employee makes a complaint. One of the first questions to consider is whether the complaint requires a full-blown formal investigation or a less formal resolution because the complaint is a minor policy violation. It is crucial to know what steps to take if a need to search an employee’s desk, computer, smart phone or locker arises. Plus, when should one involve the legal counsel, and what evidence should be gathered?
In this webinar, industry veteran Susan Strauss will answer all these questions – and teach the art and science of conducting an investigation. She will walk attendees through the best practices on how to conduct a fair and impartial investigation, and reduce the organization’s risk of liability. Strauss will provide practical tips on how to detect when someone is lying, teach attendees how to conclude and follow up an investigation, and how to write a formal investigation report.
The session will provide insights to HR managers, consultants, supervisors and other related senior professionals on how to:
- Identify what constitutes a complaint
- Determine if an investigation is necessary
- Discuss the steps of a workplace investigation
- Explore the intricacies of interviewing the accuser, accused and witnesses
- Demonstrate good documentation
- Differentiate between a formal and informal investigative procedures searches
- Determine credibility
- Discuss tips on whether someone is lying
- Help attendees reach a conclusion following an investigation
- Follow up with appropriate action based on the outcome of the investigation
- Help attendees write a formal report outlining the investigation
