Workplace Investigations: Best practices for getting it right

When an employee levels accusations of workplace misconduct by a coworker or supervisor, employers are in the difficult position of having to sort through the allegations to determine whether the complaint is supported. Or potential misconduct may be reported by vendors, customers, or internal parties who may have witnessed or heard about an “incident.”

These investigations can be tricky, given the potential that serious misconduct will surface with liability exposure for the employer, not to mention a myriad of other considerations, such as dealing with confidentiality and privacy concerns, avoiding retaliation, and ensuring that the investigation is complete and thorough.

Join us for a discussion of best practices for conducting workplace investigations featuring a panel of experts who will share their insights on what employers need to know about these sensitive but necessary inquiries, and how to avoid common pitfalls. The roundtable discussion will include:

  • Launching the investigation
  • When to hand it off to a third party
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Dealing with privacy concerns
  • Sharing the results
