How to Legally and Effectively Conduct Workplace Investigations
Presented by John M. Bagyi, Esq., SPHR, SHRM-SCP

In today’s workplace, investigations into workplace harassment, theft and other forms of employee misconduct are commonplace. Handled correctly, a workplace investigation can limit or even eliminate an employer’s legal liability. Yet, all too often, workplace investigations are inadequate or ineffective.

This presentation will provide a crash course in how to effectively and legally conduct workplace investigations by addressing difficult issues, including where to start an investigation, who should be interviewed, how to handle a difficult witness or one who refuses to participate, and the rights of employees during investigatory interviews. This presentation will address these and other difficult issues and will give you the tools you need to conduct workplace investigations.
