Workplace Investigations Training for Supervisors: How to Act, and What to Say without Breaking the Law - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to train supervisors and managers on how to act so they doesn’t spark harassment, retaliation, or other lawsuits based on their conduct during and after internal investigations.

Courts generally view supervisors as agents of their employers. During a workplace investigation, if a supervisor breaks confidentiality, engages in harassing or retaliatory conduct toward someone who’s lodged a complaint about the workplace or serves as a witness to questionable conduct, or otherwise conducts him or herself in a way that’s not in the organization’s best interests, the organization could be exposed to tremendous legal liability if a harassment or retaliation claim is filed.

To minimize these risks, HR should train supervisors and managers on how to conduct themselves during and following a workplace investigation.

Use this on-demand webinar with Attorney Timothy Murphy of Skoler Abbott who will outline best practices for training supervisors and managers on how to conduct workplace investigations and properly manage their own conduct during and after the probe.

After this webinar, you’ll be able to train supervisors and managers to:

  • Conduct themselves properly during an investigation—including if they are accused of wrongdoing
  • Respond appropriately if they receive a complaint or witness inappropriate conduct
  • Maintain the appropriate level of confidentiality 
  • Avoid actions that might fuel harassment or retaliation claims
  • Communicate with employees about the investigation without exposing the organization to liability
  • And more!
