The Genesee Valley Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management's March program, "Conducting Effective Workplace Investigations," will be presented by Benjamin Mudrick and Lindsey Bober, attorneys in HSE's Labor and Employment practice group.
More and more often HR professionals are being asked to conduct workplace investigations. These investigations may include allegations of harassment, discrimination, workplace violence, violation of company policy, etc. In this training session, Lindsey and Ben will provide practical advice for conducting investigations that are thorough, impartial, and effective.

- Understand when it is appropriate for an investigation to be conducted by an HR professional and when to use an outside investigator.
- Be better prepared to conduct investigations with skills related to determining the scope of the investigation, interviewing witnesses, and collecting evidence.
