Workplace Investigations (Kamloops)


From 9:00am PST until 4:00pm PST

At Hotel Five540Forty

540 Victoria Street, Kamloops, BC

CHRP credits: 6.0

Program Summary:

Internal Investigations allow a company to monitor itself to ensure that its managers, supervisors, and employees comply with the law as well as internal policies and guidelines.

The combination of WorkSafeBC's requirement for bullying & harassment policies and training, as well as a heightened desire by many employers to actually have, not just talk about, a "Respectful Workplace", has placed an increased emphasis on the need to conduct comprehensive, objective, and professional internal investigations.

This workshop will provide attendees with the tools and strategies needed to organize, plan, execute and conclude an effective internal investigation.

You Will Learn:

  • Effectively gather the facts necessary to make a credible determination about "what happened";
  • Assess whether "what happened" violated a policy or practice and, identify gaps in policy or practices;
  • Prepare a general and specific recommendation for resolution; and
  • Equip the manager(s) receiving the investigation results with the tools needed to implement recommendations.
