Workplace Investigation Training:  Module I and II

 

These two modules are designed to provide a comprehensive curriculum that teaches investigative techniques and legal concepts while creating opportunities to practice skills in a small-group environment.  

 

Individuals may register for these modules separately, but Module I must be completed before Module II.  

 

These courses are intended for training in-house counsel, Human Resources professionals, ombudsman offices, and Risk Management professionals on best practices for conducting investigations into bullying, discrimination, harassment and retaliation in the workplace. 

 

Module I is day-long seminar that provides a detailed overview of how properly to investigate concerns or allegations of personnel misconduct in a thorough, fair, and well-documented manner that contemplates potential litigation. Significant time is spent on investigation plans, document gathering, techniques for interviewing witnesses, and report writing. The agenda for Module I is below.

 

Module II is a 2-day, in-depth practicum on Workplace Investigations that provides attendees with an experiential learning opportunity to apply the principles from Module I in an environment where typical investigation challenges are presented and instant feedback is provided from experienced Labor and Employment litigators. Attendees will interview witnesses, create a written report, and undergo a mock deposition.

 

This practicum is designed to cross train in-house counsel and to enhance the skills of Risk Management and HR professionals for conducting investigations into personnel matters such as bullying, discrimination, harassment and retaliation.

 

The Module II Practicum is required to complete the Workplace Investigations Certification provided by WIG.

 

Agendas for both Modules are below, and each seminar day begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m.

 

Workplace Investigation Training: 2 Day Intermediate

 

This course is a shortened version of Modules I and II (see above) that does not include a mock deposition experience in conjunction with planning a workplace investigation, gathering records and documents, conducting witness interviews, evidence analysis and report writing.
