Webinar: Investigating EEO Complaints
Includes a Live Web Event on 12/14/2023 at 1:00 PM (EST)
Participates will be introduced to the basics of interpreting an EEO Complaint, how to recognize the prima facia elements that the Charging Party (employee) must met to establish a claim of discrimination, how to develop an allegation, and elements of a ROI.
During this webinar, participants will benefit will learn about real life case scenarios, basic techniques to developing an IP which guides the investigation process and producing a thorough, comprehensive ROI with content that is thorough and which provides the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) with important information if a charge is filed against the company.
One of the main points addressed will be the production of a thorough IP that will help workplace investigators mitigate complaints as they arise. HR practitioners who preside over employment discrimination complaints and who have basic understanding and knowledge of the investigation process can help companies reduce litigation. In contrast, an HR generalist with limited understanding, or limited knowledge in processing workplace discrimination complaints may jeopardize the process, resulting in an unfavorable agency decision, penalty, or fine.
Participants will have access to examples of different IPs and ROIs which they can incorporate at their respective workplaces and use as a best practice strategy for investigating workplace discrimination complaints if they choose to do so. To learn more, please join us on Thursday, December 14th at 1:00 pm ET.
