In any workplace, incidents of harassment may occur that trigger the need for employers to conduct an investigation. These investigations must be prompt, thorough, and well-planned in order to avoid claims from the parties involved. Join Labor and Employment attorney Louis Chodoff in this presentation that guides viewers on how to conduct workplace investigations. Mr. Chodoff begins by explaining why it is imperative to properly investigate claims and the possible legal claims that can be brought against employers. He then explains the essential steps that should be taken during the pre-investigation stage (stressing the importance of selecting the right investigator). He also provides tips on how to conduct interviews (with the alleged victim, the accused, and other witnesses) and emphasizes the need to reach a decision. This course will be extremely helpful for Labor and Employment practitioners and for all partners of law firms.
