When you receive an allegation of workplace harassment or discrimination or believe your organization has become a victim of fraud or theft – taking prompt action is your legal responsibility.
But let’s face it: most HR professionals or business owners have never had formal training in how to conduct internal investigations. And without having the proper skills in how to handle allegations in the workplace – and investigate them effectively – employees may feel their complaints are not taken seriously internally.
As a result, they take their complaints externally – to the EEOC, DOL, or to their attorney. Therefore, our Internal Investigations training course is a must-attend for those individuals that are responsible for employee relations and the handling of internal investigations.
After all, is the time to learn how to do an internal investigation whenyou are suddenly faced with having to do one? Of course not. That’s where our training can help!
