Conducting an Effective Internal Investigation in the United States

January 12, 2010




January 12, 2010

This webinar will be devoted exclusively to addressing the special and unique issues that arise when investigating employee misconduct in the States. We will discuss all of the practical and legal issues and will offer you a perspective that includes lawyers from the East, South, Midwest and West Coast. The speakers will cover:

  • Standard of proof – how much evidence you need to decide if misconduct occurred
  • Effectively interviewing the accuser, the accused and neutral witnesses
  • Getting "pay dirt" from the accused
  • Working with reluctant witnesses
  • Who, if anyone, has the right to remain silent, to legal representation and to union representation
  • Assessing credibility
  • Sorting relevant from irrelevant evidence
  • Addressing concerns about retaliation and confidentiality
  • Arriving at a conclusion that will withstand a legal challenge
  • Effectively using legal counsel as part of this process
