Seminar Summary

Sophisticated employers and human resources professionals know the value of a timely, thorough and properly conducted investigation. An effective investigation reduces the chance of subsequent litigation and increases the prospect of success should an employer’s decision be challenged. However, adjudicators are increasingly expecting employers who conduct investigations to “get it right”. In the human rights context in particular, an employer may have a procedural duty to conduct a proper investigation and can face liability if it fails to do so. It is not enough to merely do the right thing; how one gets there is equally important.

In this interactive session, we will share practical tips to ensure that you are equipped with the tools necessary to conduct a proper investigation, including:

  • Different approaches for different types of investigation
  • Who should conduct the investigation?
  • Investigation techniques: physical evidence, interviews, document review, etc.
  • How to deal with "he says, she says"
  • Common pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • Effective documentation and reporting
  • Communicating results of an investigation
