A comprehensive and interactive class that will provide the critical skills and necessary information to successfully address most employment-related complaints.

Complaints of discrimination, harassment, hostile work environment, workplace bullying and employee misconduct are difficult, sensitive and on the rise. If not handled correctly, such complaints can lead to significant problems, and potential expense for a town, city or county. Investigations are difficult and very time-consuming for in-house staff to conduct. This training is intended to provide officials responsible for addressing these matters with the critical knowledge, skills and confidence needed to conduct thorough and effective investigations. Focus areas will include planning for the investigation, assessing credibility, reaching appropriate findings, understanding applicable federal and state laws, and writing effective reports; the session will include scenario-based interactive role playing to explore concepts presented and sharpen skills, and it will conclude with a Q&A segment to allow participants to discuss their questions and concerns.
