A Crash Course on HR Investigations and How to Effectively Handle Employee Complaints

Human resources professionals deal with employee complaints almost every day—it’s an important part of the job. But do you know what to do when a complaint requires an investigation, or even how to identify what kinds of complaints should give rise to an investigation? If you don’t, you’re not alone—many HR professionals have not had the proper training in how to conduct investigations.

Just grabbing a notepad and calling in one witness after the other is most definitely not the best option. When HR is unsure about how to handle complaints and conduct investigations, the employer is at much greater risk for violating federal, state and in some instances even local laws. The way to minimize those risks, and the costs associated with mishandling an employee's allegations, is to ensure an organization’s HR staff has a basic understanding of when an investigation is needed and how to conduct one.

Join expert speaker Natalie Ivey in this presentation to get a better understanding of the HR investigation process. This session is a must-attend for HR professionals who are responsible for handling employee relations issues.
