Workplace investigations are under scrutiny like never before, having been thrust into the spotlight by the #MeToo, Black Lives Matter and similar movements.

Investigations are now often conducted remotely, adding complexity to considerations of fairness.

Now, more than ever, it’s important to have more than basic knowledge and skills to carry out fair and effective investigations.

Over 4 intensive online modules, you will “learn by doing” with lectures, group discussions, breakouts and simulated workplace investigation interviews. You will conduct interviews and receive constructive, practical feedback, enabling you to sharpen your skills.

Registration includes 120-day unlimited, online access to the recorded program.
