WEBINAR: Best Practices for Internal Investigations
Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 1 PM ET
Presented by Daniel Deacon - Conn Maciel Carey
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Gathering reliable information about employees and workplace incidents in order to make reasonable and informed employment decisions is not new for employers. However, most workplace investigations concerning individual employee issues vary depending on the complexity of the issues and the number of people involved. The commonplace internal investigations are often related to discrimination, harassment, retaliation, theft, and misconduct. However, employers need to be prepared to handle a range of incidents with the appropriate response. With the rise in technology and the global economy, employers are experiencing a host of other issues, including whistleblowing, insider trading, corporate fraud, and misappropriation of trade secrets. An ill-considered response to any of these issues will create even more problems for employers. This webinar will provide best practice on preparing for and conducting internal investigations for a variety of workplace issues. The webinar will discuss appropriate investigation policies and procedures, pre-investigation planning, attorney-client privilege considerations, investigation tips and witness interviews, and post-investigation disciplinary measures.
