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

When an employee makes a harassment complaint involving specific allegations, an investigation may be required. Courts have ruled that failure by employers to investigate equates to discrimination. So, protecting your company includes not only conducting sound sexual harassment investigations, but conducting them well. Conducting sexual harassment 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 sexual harassment investigations in the work environment that is  sound and thorough.

Course Objectives:

• Articulate reasons and obligations for conducting sexual harassment investigations in the workplace

• Define steps for planning and conducting a thorough sexual harassment investigation

• Identify common errors employers make in responding to employee complaints and define ways to avoid making these errors

• Enumerate characteristics and details to identify and decide on an appropriate investigator for sexual harassment investigations

• List out helpful resources for employers to draw upon before and during investigations of sexual harassment complaints

Why Should You Attend:

Conducting a sound sexual harassment investigation in the workplace with thoroughness and diligence can be a confusing and labor-intensive undertaking. Add to that the importance of conducting the investigation in a timely manner and you face a potentially daunting task that must be done in addition to your day-to-day responsibilities.

This course is designed to provide you with a step-by-step process for conducting a sexual harassment investigation in the workplace without becoming overwhelmed. You’ll learn ways to plan out your investigation, handle requests not to investigate, understand the importance of hearsay, and learn specific aspects of selecting the ideal investigator.
