Just the Facts: Conducting Workplace Investigations

Sponsored by: Berchem Moses PC and the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce

Workplace investigations – and the need for them – have been in the news a lot lately.  Do you need to review the basics, such as what triggers them, who should conduct them, and why they are important, to protect your business? The workplace investigation process is an important risk management tool for employers.  When investigations are handled properly, they can aid employers in avoiding lawsuits, offer employers affirmative defenses to alleged misconduct, and lessen damages when litigation occurs.

Join us for a full hot breakfast catered by Zoi’s and great giveaways. This informative presentation will discuss the investigation process, including:
* Fact-finding techniques
* Conducting witness interviews
* Credibility assessment
* Data collection
* Reaching conclusions
* Minimizing future claims
