This webinar focuses on the impact of COVID-19 on workplace investigations. Our panel of workplace investigators and in-house counsel will consider new practices that have been adopted by workplace investigators to assist the investigation process. Which of these practices should remain post the pandemic and why? Were there any practices that developed that should now be ditched? We will also consider how these adapted investigation practices were viewed by those who instruct workplace investigators. What was the experience of inhouse counsel with the investigation process during the pandemic? Did these new practices align with our client’s expectations? Were there any difficulties and how were they overcome? Our speakers will share and discuss investigation practices that were adapted or implemented during 2020 and consider whether any of these practices might continue as we emerge from the pandemic.
