When investigating a “he said/she said” case of sexual harassment or other alleged misconduct, are you using scientifically-validated methods to interview witnesses, assess their credibility, and reach a defensible conclusion?
Join organizations such as Google, the EEOC, FedEx, the United Nations, and the World Bank and train your internal investigators with the latest research-based investigation techniques. This seminar can be delivered on-site at your location, using webcast technology, or a combination of both.
Workplace investigators often receive training on “best practices” for investigations. Unfortunately, over the past 15 years, scientists have found that much of the conventional wisdom on how to effectively interview witnesses and determine truthfulness is wrong. At the same time, courts have found companies liable for using scientifically unproven interviewing and other investigative techniques in workplace investigations.
In the two-day course, attendees will also participate in two role-play exercises where each person gets to practice the interviewing and other investigation techniques learned in the course.
Former U.S. Department of Justice lawyer Michael Johnson presents the seminar. Michael, a graduate of Harvard Law School, was the lead attorney on one DOJ’s first class action style sexual harassment cases. He has provided investigations training for organizations around the world, including Google, the EEOC, FedEx, the United Nations, and the World Bank.
