Workplace Investigation Training – by McDonald HR Law and Noxon Workplace Investigation

Posted by

Not my program – but I highly respect Maria and Cleo and would recommend this program to my health care and child welfare clients.

  • Learn what harassment is: and what it is not, as well as the definition of sexual harassment and discrimination
  • Learn how to investigate: to be able to competently respond to allegations in your workplace
  • Practise investigating: to gain confidence, by applying techniques in mock interviews as part of a case study
  • Write an investigation report: and receive feedback on how to improve your skills

T W O  D A Y  C O U R S E  F O R  M A N A G E R S :  H O W  T O  C O N D U C T  B A S I C  I N T E R- NA L  W O R K P L A C E  C O M P L A I N T  I N V E S T I G A T I O N S .

Employers are increasingly responding to allegations of harassment and discrimination in the workplace as employees become more aware of their rights to a safe and healthy work environment. Every allegation of harassment, whether submitted as a formal complaint, witnessed, or even just heard about, must be investigated.

However, not every investigation has to be formal, nor done by an expensive lawyer or third party investigator. This virtual course, taught by an employment lawyer and independent investigator, will equip managers with the knowledge and skills they need, to know whether they can, and should, investigate allegations internally, and if so, how to go about it.
