Handling Employee Complaints and Investigations 


California law obligates employers to investigate all employee complaints involving potentially unlawful behavior, no matter how minor that complaint might be. How can the employer determine when the complaint is serious enough to involve unlawful behavior, and when an investigation is required? If an investigation is required, who should conduct it? What should be asked? How should it be finalized?




In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the employer's obligations in responding to and investigating employee complaints. Topics will include the following:
  • Recognizing employee complaints
  • Knowing when to investigate a complaint
  • Determining who should be investigating the complaint
  • Who should be included in the investigation?
  • What questions should be asked?
  • What do I do with the complainant and accused while I'm investigating?
  • Is it confidential?
  • Do I need an attorney?
  • And much more!
