Sexual Harassment Investigation

Learn how to implement an effective workplace investigation on sexual harassment and how to identify inappropriate conduct before it turns into a lawsuit.

With the rising costs of litigation, the increased number of sexual harassment lawsuits being filed, and the difficulties companies face in litigating sexual harassment lawsuits, often times lawsuits are decided on evidence gathered in the investigation process. Without an effective workplace investigation, your company can be left defending a multi-million dollar lawsuit solely built on 'he said/she said' evidence. In this topic, you will learn how to not only identify inappropriate conduct but also how to conduct and document a workplace investigation. We will give you tools which will allow you to train your managers to take proactive steps to reduce or eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace.
