Investigating Discrimination in the Workplace
|Central Time online CT||September 13, 2021||$595.00 + tax|
This is a one-day course that teaches participants about the challenges of investigating and understanding complaints of discrimination in the workplace.
Sometimes complainants present you with information that could give rise to a complaint of discrimination even if it is not framed that way. As the investigator, it is your obligation to understand how a complaint could be a discrimination complaint and come to conclusions on whether something constitutes discrimination. More importantly, investigators should be aware of how investigations in and of themselves could be discriminatory

Investigator’s Guide to Preparing for the Hearing, Adjudication or Trial
|Central Time online CT||November 15, 2021||$595.00 + tax|
Investigations do not end after the interviews are completed and the report is written. In many situations, the investigation is the basis for a hearing, adjudication or trial. Investigators play a critical role in the presentation of an effective case to a judge, hearings officer or adjudicator by assisting the presenting lawyer and, in many cases, giving evidence as a witness.
This course is designed to assist anyone who has a role in the process, including investigators, counsel, and human resources professionals who may be involved in workplace related adjudications, tribunals and hearings.
