Topic Background:

Just listen or skim the news on any platform and you’ll become familiar with the fallout that can come from discrimination in the workplace. More concerning, however, is that even if incidents happen outside the workplace, discrimination can affect an employer’s reputation and financial results.

When an employee makes a discrimination complaint involving specific allegations, an investigation may be required. Protecting your company includes not only conducting sound discrimination investigations, but conducting them well. Conducting discrimination investigations default mostly to HR professionals, and for good reason. With their specialized job training as well as their superior interpersonal skills, it’s a logical choice.

However, it may be surprising to learn that HR professionals often conduct workplace investigations without a specific methodology or without specific training. With that in mind, this course is designed to provide HR practitioners of all levels with a step-by-step process for conducting discrimination investigations in the work environment that is sound and thorough.

The course also includes specific topics that frequently come up as part of an investigation such as requests to not investigate, complaints against higher-level employees, the value of hearsay, and common errors in responding to employee complaints.
