Original Program Date:

Never expires.



Many companies employ workplace investigators.  Those investigators face questions different from external investigators because of their role and relationships within the company.  Who conducts investigations?  Who does the investigator report to?  Does the investigator make recommendations?  Should the investigator be involved in correcting the behavior?  How does the investigator maintain relationships with business leaders?  These answers to these questions impact the quality and outcome of the investigation.  Especially in the era of #metoo, thoughtfully and thoroughly answering these question is becoming increasingly important for internal investigators. 



By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify areas of special concern for internal investigators;
  • Analyze pros and cons of various approaches inside a company; and
  • Learn about various practices of internal investigators.
