HR Investigation

Real-life headlines like this show the legal danger of making even one mistake when investigating workplace misconduct. But you've probably received little – if any – training in this crucial area of HR compliance.

Important: The coronavirus crisis doesn’t give you a free pass to avoid this responsibility … in fact, your HR investigations are more important than ever. Knowing where to draw the lines on employees’ behavior (and how to investigate it) is a crucial skill in these unique times.

That's why we created the HR Investigations Workshop. This must-attend webinar will show you what to do – and what to avoid – when conducting effective investigations into claims of harassment and other misconduct. That includes misconduct by work-from-home employees and unsupervised staff in the workplace.
