Topic: Harassment Investigations

In today’s legal landscape, with changing legislation and increased public scrutiny, it is essential that employers, and their HR teams, are fully prepared to deal with issues of harassment in the workplace. This includes not only understanding what to do when an issue arises, but how to mitigate against workplace harassment in the first place, as well as how to move forward after an incident has occurred.

In this interactive session, we will walk you through the stages of a thorough and impartial workplace investigation with the aid of case studies based on recent decisions. We will discuss: creating an effective written policy against workplace harassment, training workers, responding to allegations of harassment in the workplace, determining when an independent investigator may be necessary, conducting the investigation, reaching a conclusion, and taking appropriate remedial action in the circumstances.
