Investigating Employee Misconduct

Course Description

Experienced principals and managers know that the vast majority of their employees regularly carry out their duties well and with care. However, there are occasions where an employee may misstep or fail to meet their professional obligations requiring a manager to review and correct their conduct.

This two day hands-on training session will provide participants with the opportunity to work through a case study together to:

  • identify key issues for review and development of an appropriate investigation plan
  • prepare for and conduct interviews with witnesses, complainants and respondents (including how to deal with difficult and disruptive behaviours)
  • and assemble and weigh the evidence gathered to determine the appropriate course of action
  • and conclude the interview on the right note

Real-time coaching and feedback will support and cement the learning so that participants feel ready and confident to immediately apply the skills that they will develop at the conclusion of this highly interactive workshop.

Text & Resource Materials

Any course manuals or course materials will be provided to you on the first day of class.
