About The Seminar

California law obligates employers to investigate all employee complaints involving potentially unlawful behavior, no matter how minor that complaint might be. How can the employer determine when the complaint is serious enough to involve unlawful behavior, and when an investigation is required? If an investigation is required, who should conduct it? What should be asked? How should it be finalized?

In this informative seminar, employment law attorneys Jonathan Fraser Light and Susan S. Waag will discuss the employer's obligations in responding to and investigating employee complaints. Topics will include the following:

  • Recognizing employee complaints
  • Knowing when to investigate a complaint
  • Determining who should be investigating the complaint
  • Who should be included in the investigation?
  • What questions should be asked?
  • What do I do with the complainant and accused while I'm investigating?
  • Is it confidential?
  • Do I need an attorney?
  • What do I say to witnesses?
  • What shouldn't I say?
  • How do I bring it to a close?
  • What do I tell the participants?
  • What do I tell the complainant?
  • What do I tell the accused?
  • Should I record it?
  • Where do I keep the files?
  • Do I have to share my files?
  • Training your supervisors
  • Recommended and required policies

*Attendance is limited to no more than three people per company.
