San Francisco partner Mark Posard will be presenting a webinar titled "Conducting Effective Workplace Investigations" on Thursday, November 10th at 10 a.m. PST. The program is provided by HR Options.
Workplace investigations are a key part of handling an employee's complaint. When done correctly, they can be an effective tool for protecting employers from liability. When done incorrectly, they can be a source of creating new potential liabilities. Mark will discuss how to handle workplace investigations and how to obtain relevant and accurate information which is critical for all parties involved. He will share best practice advice based on his years of experience handling employment claims that involved both effective and ineffective investigations. To help improve an investigator's skills, he will discuss the following topics:
- Triggers for investigations
- Considerations prior to investigations
- Developing an investigation strategy
