Conducting Bulletproof Internal Investigations
It happens. There is an incident at your office and an employee files a complaint about another employee. What you do next will have an impact on the outcome of the complaint, and if done wrong, can have a disastrous impact on your organization.
This training will identify the steps necessary to ensure your internal investigation is conducted fairly, impartially and as professionally as possible. In addition, retaliation claims are consistently among the greatest number of EEOC charges filed each year. We will identify the steps necessary to reduce the possibility of this type of claim.
Specific objectives accomplished in this session will include:
• How to prepare for an investigation before one must be started
• Keys to staying impartial during the investigation
• When to bring in someone from outside to conduct the investigation
• Step by step process from the time of a complaint to the final resolution of the issue
• Best practices for training your supervisors to avoid a retaliation claim
• What to include in a final report
• What to tell the complaining employee after the investigation
