A free 60-minute Interactive Webinar Sponsored by AIHC

Time: 1:00 pm ET/12:00 pm CT/11:00 am MT/10:00 am PT

The webinar is suitable for anyone who is currently or will be involved in auditing, investigating, or managing Compliance matters. It aims to dispel any misconceptions about investigations and provide accurate information. Can also be useful for a wide range of people, including colleagues who conduct only a few investigations per year, as well as non-investigators.

Course Description

From time to time, an employer will need to investigate – formally or informally – concerns about an employee’s workplace behavior.  If your organization has a hotline and other reporting channels to give employees a way to speak up, this is only half of the equation. 

The other half is thoroughly addressing – and when necessary, fully investigating – allegations once they have been reported.

Investigating and resolving an allegation correctly strengthens and protects your organization.  A proper investigation gives management needed information and a factual basis on which to make its decisions.  It also reinforces both the fairness of the employee discipline process and your commitment to learning about employee concerns.

The objectives and scope of investigations vary widely, but its overriding purpose is always to find out the relevant facts.  Each investigation may be unique and handled differently, following standard techniques can help you investigate in a fair, transparent, and consistent manner.

This module identifies common misconceptions about investigations and explains the truth. Each participant will receive an infographic of the “Rules for Investigators” that contains useful advice for investigators.
