Internal workplace harassment investigations are commonly conducted by a company representative, such as from within the Human Resources department or other competent investigators.  A different approach includes having a union representative co-investigate the complaint, which can often alleviate difficult conversations and a grievance about the findings after the fact. 

Join three Canadian investigators as they:

  • Discuss a different approach that mutually benefits the Union and Company when a harassment investigation becomes necessary
  • Address and discuss employee expectations when a joint process is introduced and sought by the parties
  • Discuss how the Company and Union can jointly investigate a complaint of harassment in an unbiased manner
  • Discuss how managing workplace conflict and harassment complaints can benefit the Company and Union membership

Please note that this webinar is targeted towards the Canadian investigator.
