The Topic

"Yikes! There's a Monster Under My Bed!"

Sometimes, looking into complaints or concerns that have been brought to your attention can be downright scary - especially if it involves serious allegations that could potentially involve legal risk. More often than not, we become anxious because we're afraid of what we will uncover. But we're also paralyzed because we don't know where to begin, what to do, or how to go about doing it. Relax! We've got you covered. This session will provide you with practical, common-sense guidance on how to conduct effective workplace investigations.
