About This Course
When you receive an allegation of workplace harassment or discrimination or have received a potential Ethics violation, taking prompt action is your legal responsibility.
But let's face it: most HR, Employee Relations’, Ethics and Compliance professionals – as well as business owners - have never had any formal training in how to properly conduct an internal investigation. And without having the appropriate skills in how to handle allegations in the workplace, and investigate them effectively, employees may feel their complaints are not taken seriously internally.
As a result, employees often take their complaints externally to the EEOC, Department of Labor, or to their attorney. Therefore, our Internal Investigations training course is a must-attend for those individuals who are responsible for handling employee relations issues and conducting internal, workplace investigations.
After all, is the time to learn how to do an internal investigation when you are suddenly faced with having to do one? Of course not. That's where our training can help!
