A Deep Dive Into Issues Related to Workplace Investigations
PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MATHEWS, DINSDALE & CLARK LLP
POSTPONED FROM September 11, 2019, NEW DATE TBD - HALIFAX, 9:00AM – 12:00PM
We are pleased to offer our members in Atlantic Canada this session on workplace investigations with speakers Sonia Regenbogen and Tara Erskine, QC.
General counsel, and the human resources professionals within their organizations, are spending an increasing amount of time guiding the conduct of formal and informal investigations of workplace complaints. This is in part a response to the increasing requirements of human rights and occupational health and safety legislation as well as internal workplace policies. The complaints that require investigation may relate to complaints of workplace harassment and discrimination, issues related to just cause misconduct, violations of workplace policies, or other difficult issues.
In light of this area of increasing responsibility, in our experience, General Counsel are welcoming the opportunity to continue to improve their skills and experience in order to be better prepared for the rigors of guiding workplace investigations and managing the litigation that flows from the investigation of workplace complaints.
Lunch will be provided by WGCC at the Bicycle Thief following the event. Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible.
We hope to see you there!
