Join our panel for a practical discussion about key challenges, solutions, and lessons learned from workplace investigations under the Bill C-65 framework with public and private sector clients from an internal and external perspective.
Learn about the ins and outs of cross-border investigations, why they are on the increase, ethical obligations, and trends relevant for both internal and external investigators. This engaging discussion will also cover potential risks and opportunities involved in international investigations to include confidentiality and privilege.
This webinar is an introduction to the changes to the Canada Labour Code regarding Harassment and Violence, and to the new Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations coming into force in Canada on January 1, 2021.
This webinar will explore the factors Canadian adjudicators examine in determining whether a workplace investigation is covered by legal privilege and when an employer may want to assert or waive any potential privilege claim. Using real life examples, participants will also come away with an understanding of some of the procedural steps they must adhere to if they wish to have a workplace investigation withstand scrutiny by Canadian adjudicators.
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.
