On January 28, Davis+Gilbert Labor + Employment partner Sharon Cohen will speak during the Labor & Employment Law Section of the New York State Bar Association’s Annual Meeting Virtual Conference. Her session is entitled “Workplace Investigations.”
Now that sexual harassment training by employers has been mandated, workplace investigations are proliferating and are a more important issue than ever for both management and employee-side attorneys. The panel will discuss and offer insights into the questions that continue to vex employers in this area, such as who is best suited to conduct an investigation and, once it is underway, what are the best practices for carrying it out? On the other side, what should employees who make complaints do to ensure that the ensuing investigation is effective and objective?
