Investigating Employee Misconduct (Intensive Series)

Course Description

Most employees regularly carry out their duties well; but there are occasions when an employee may misstep or fail to meet their professional obligations, requiring a manager to investigate and correct their conduct.

This 1.5-day training session provides participants with an opportunity to work through an investigation into allegations of wrongdoing where they will:

  • 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 behaviors)
  • 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.

We will be offering this course via Zoom.  Participants will be supported and coached online as they work through exercises and  sector-specific case studies to enhance the learning.
