How You Will Benefit

A skillful investigator is crucial when an employee claims they have been discriminated against based on their protected status under EEO - enforced laws. It is important that employer representatives can quickly uncover the relevant facts of what happened and skillfully draft a reliable report summary to determine a resolution.

This course is delivered by experienced EEO professionals with an understanding of adult learning for increased interaction and comprehension. Content is designed for newly appointed employee complaint investigators seeking new skills as well as those wanting to update their knowledge and gain new tips and tools.
