Sudbury: 10.21.20 *Virtual* Restoring the Workplace: after the investigation

Dealing with workplace harassment and sexual harassment has become increasingly challenging and risky for employers to navigate. The awareness of high-profile cases, *Metoo and *Timesup movement activity, enhanced legislative protections and expanded employee entitlements have emboldened those experiencing and observing this misconduct to bring their issues forward. This has resulted in an increasing number of investigations being conducted, and what most organizations don’t prepare for is the destabilizing impact an investigation can have on engagement, morale and workplace culture.

Learning Outcome: Using interactive case studies to set the context, attendees will:

  • Consider the impact of investigations on the workplace  
  • Examine the complexities of workplace harassment and sexual harassment complaints and incidents, which can create challenges for internal workplace investigators and derail morale and culture
