Investigating Complaints in the Workplace


Join us for practical guidance concerning investigations of complaints in the workplace -- unfair treatment, sexual harassment, unequal pay, termination for cause, discrimination, and more. The course will provide an overview of federal employment laws -- including Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts – as well as how to establish non-discriminatory employment practices and strategies throughout the investigation process. Interactive training exercises, role play interviews, and other coursework will help boost your confidence while preparing you for a variety of critical situations.

After this class, students will be able to:

  • Identify triggers prompting a need for an investigation
  • Develop an investigation strategy
  • Interview all parties effectively (accused, complainant, witnesses, etc.)
  • Understand the role of documentation as part of the investigation
  • Document and communicate objective investigation findings
