Topic Name:  Legal And Other Considerations For Conducting Effective Workplace Investigations 
Presenter:  Stephen Stern

Investigations Program Summary

Whether it is responding to an employee complaint, a customer complaint, a government investigation, or some other issue, it seems that companies are devoting more time and resources to conducting investigations.  The appropriateness of the company’s response can potentially help the company avoid liability, maintain a customer relationship, and protect its image, among other things.  Thus, it is important to develop appropriate procedures for conducting investigations.  Topics for this presentation include identifying reasons why investigations may be conducted, developing strategies for structuring investigations – from understanding how investigations are initiated (e.g., intake process, or responding to a lawsuit or public relations matter), to identifying potential investigators (including the role of legal counsel), and forming strategies for fact gathering and evidence preservation – and developing resolutions for the matters being investigated.

After attending this session, participants should be able to (1) develop strategies and procedures for initiating and conducting effective investigations, (2) conduct and/or supervise effective investigations, whether conducted internally or with the assistance of a third party investigator, (3) understand legal issues associated with investigations, and (4) determine appropriate resolutions and follow up steps to investigations.
