THE INVESTIGATION AFTERMATH | HOW WORKPLACE INVESTIGATIONS ARE USED IN LITIGATION AND TIPS TO MAKE INVESTIGATIONS "ATTACK PROOF"

This session will use real-life lawsuits as examples to teach critical lessons on conducting workplace investigations. It will focus on particular cases that involved a workplace investigation, demonstrate how the integrity of that investigation was attacked (by either the plaintiff or defendant), and provide key tips and step-by-step methods to avoid the same issues in investigations moving forward. In-house counsel speakers will provide their insight on obstacles and best practices to ensure investigations are done in a way to be effectively used in litigation. These case studies will touch upon the topics of confidentiality, thoroughness, promptness, privilege, credibility, and other issues. Further, the panelists will not only utilize these case studies, but also audience interaction and polling to increase engagement and collaboratively discuss ways to avoid such litigation pitfalls
