 Check-in: 7:45 a.m. Breakfast: 7:45 a.m. Program: 8:15 a.m. to 12 noon



Employers need to be prepared for any new Employment Laws that become effective on 1/1/2018. This portion of the workshop will alert the attendees of upcoming legislation that will impact them and what they need to do to be prepared.

Conducting fair, legal, and thorough internal investigations is important and must be done correctly. Organizations are being charged with major fines and penalties for failing to properly conduct internal investigations. 

If your organization is facing litigation, there simply isn’t room for mistakes. It’s up to you to ensure you’ve done all you can to protect them – and yourself. 

Coverage includes:

• The employer’s rights and obligations regarding internal investigations

• Setting the stage for a successful investigation

• Conduct internal investigations

• Documenting the investigation

• Reporting your findings and making recommendations

• Preventing employee retaliation and misconduct
