Workplace Investigations: How to Avoid Costly Mistakes (Expert Panel)

Conducting workplace investigations is one of the most challenging management and HR duties, but also one of the most important. In this session, learn how to conduct effective workplace investigations into harassment and other workplace wrongdoing with actual case studies and our panel of experts to include a labour and employment law lawyer, a private investigations specialist and a local police officer to answer your questions.

Session highlights:

* Within the organization, who’s involved in the decision/investigative process
* Who should conduct the investigation - and who should not and why
* Interviewing witnesses, obtaining evidence, possible questions to ask
* Effective policy and procedures
* Report writing
* When to bring in a lawyer or an investigations specialist or contact the police
* What preparations you need to do before contacting the police
* Procedural fairness
* Civil vs Criminal- how you make the right decision
* Impact of the making the wrong decision

Employers have a legal, ethical and moral duty to investigate thoroughly, to recognize due process and take the appropriate action. Participants will work through actual cases to learn how to make the right decision and avoid costly damages.

Attracting, Hiring and Retaining the Very Best Talent: What’s New?

Today’s talent ‘supply and demand’ equation is very different. For many, business models of yesterday no longer generate the results we are looking for. Time-to-hire is increasing, cost-to-hire is up, finding the right candidate is more difficult and when we do find that ‘right one,’ the bidding war in on. So, what do we do?

Gain insights on important trends in talent acquisition as well as the best strategies and tactics that really work. We will do a deep dive into the make-up of today’s talent pools, what job seekers want and what we can do to align. Equally important, we will discuss the impact and opportunity of diversity and inclusion.
