An employer has a legal duty to conduct a prompt, thorough, and unbiased investigation when it becomes aware of harassment complaints in the workplace. When done properly, workplace investigations and prompt remedial action can serve to defend against employment-related claims and preclude recovery. However, when done improperly there are significant risks of exposure.
This course, presented by employment lawyer, Robin Kallor, offers an extensive overview of these legal requirements and how to best insulate workplaces from liability.
This course is designed to be helpful to lawyers seeking a better understanding of how to conduct prompt, thorough, and unbiased workplace investigations and how they can be used as a risk management tool. This course is also intended to be helpful to more experienced attorneys and academic instructors.
