Even a positive workplace environment can undergo stressful pressures when a workplace investigation is pending. Whether you represent parties to an investigation, conduct investigations, or advise on equity and diversity matters in the workplace, it's crucial to have a solid understanding of both the issues and the steps necessary to respond or participate effectively. Careful planning while developing an effective process can eliminate potential claims and ensure a productive environment. Our presenters take you through all the steps, skills, and insight you need, from fact-finding, to identifying the issues, to ensuring procedural fairness, and more.
