Description

When there is an overlap between a workplace investigation and a potential criminal investigation by law enforcement, there are a host of tricky issues. Who goes first? How does the employer fulfill their duties as an employer, while not negatively interfering with the law enforcement investigation? Often law enforcement works on a slower timeline than a workplace investigation, so does one have to wait for the other? This webinar will highlight these challenges for investigators, discussing different approaches for different types of cases, and provide guidance about how and when to work in concert with law enforcement, and when to move ahead on our own. 

Learning Objectives 

This webinar will: 

  • Raise awareness of the pitfalls and challenges 

  • Explain why there is no one bright-line rule for this 

  • Different duties for different types of potential crimes  

  • Dealing with law enforcement requests for a “hold” 

Distinguishing between public and private sector employers.
