What Is Internal Investigation Training?

Training and certification in conducting internal investigations covers both the legalities of the process as well as best practices for protecting both the accuser and the accused. It also gives HR managers confidence to address allegations of misconduct, harassment, theft, and fraud, and to conduct employee investigations without fear of reprisal or legal exposure.

  • The legal obligations that require employers to conduct internal investigations
  • How to gather documentary and physical evidence prior to witness interviewing

Why Is Internal Investigation Training Important?

In order to complete thorough and legal employee investigations, HR professionals must be well-versed in the legal requirements and responsibilities surrounding workplace harassment. For instance, you must know what to do when an employee lodges a complaint, and what are an employer's legal obligations to conduct internal investigations. What's more, to do and effective internal investigation, you'll need to gather and document evidence in a way that is within the confines of the legal system.

Once you have evidence of wrong-doing, you have to know how to handle the information, when to contact authorities, and how to maintain confidentiality until the investigation is closed. In some cases, you'll need to know when to bring in the police. On top of this, you must know how to protect your employees while enforcing existing workplace harassment policies.
