Davis & Gilbert Labor & Employment Breakfast Seminar:
Employee Discrimination and Harassment Complaints: Best Practices for Conducting Effective Internal Investigations

December 2016

Discrimination and hostile work environment complaints by employees often come as a surprise to employers. While companies frequently recognize the importance of anti-harassment policies and employee training, a prompt and effective strategy for handling internal complaints must also be part of every employer’s harassment prevention and risk management program.
This session will provide guidance to senior executives and human resources professionals on:

  • How to identify complaints of discrimination and hostile work environment
  • Standards for assessing whether complaints involve behavior that violates the law
  • The process and best practices for conducting internal investigations of employee complaints
  • Actions that employers should take after an investigation reveals illegal or improper conduct

Our “Quick Takes” will cover, among other things:

  • Frequently asked questions related to the federal overtime regulations
  • Recent developments in paid sick leave laws across the United States
  • New 2016 IRS Form 1095 reporting rules and 2017 ACA planning
