If you are a Human Resource professional, manager, supervisor, Health & Safety Manager, Union representative or lead hand, you may find yourself responsible for conducting investigations into workplace incidents, problematic employee behaviour or harassment complaints. Conducting a workplace investigation can be challenging in and of itself, never mind the heightened expectation of the Courts that workplace investigations must be done right. It is critical that anyone conducting a workplace investigation today, especially in light of high profile workplace harassment cases, have the essential knowledge and skills to conduct a prompt, thorough and fair investigation.

Workshop Outline:

  • The Purpose and Benefits of an Investigation
  • Preliminary Steps After an Incident
  • The Investigation Process
  • Choosing an Investigator / Qualities of an Investigaton
  • Preparing an Investigation Plan
  • Techniques for Recording Information
  • Interviewing Successfully
  • Investigation Role Play
  • Dealing with Credibility
  • Weighing the Evidence
  • The Investigation Report
