Investigations Training

Complaint investigations within organizations, when handled properly, minimize risk and help to avoid costly litigation and judgments. A well-trained, internal investigator must understand the importance of confidentiality, the investigative process, documentation and employment law.

Our consultants, all licensed employment attorneys and senior human resources professionals, are uniquely qualified to conduct complaint investigations training for your HR/ER team. They have performed thousands of employee complaint investigations and are skilled in the complicated and often litigation-bound issues organizations face when an investigation is required. They have faced every type of complaint - from harassment and discrimination to retaliation and other kinds of employee misconduct.

In order to optimize your investigations training, you may choose to have EPS examine your past investigation practices to identify any gaps or shortcomings to pinpoint areas for improvement and provide actionable recommendations to enhance your investigation processes. Whether you've encountered challenges with handling harassment and discrimination complaints, or other workplace misconduct issues, gap analysis review offers insights to strengthen your HR compliance efforts.

Our investigations training courses are consistent with the guidance outlined in ISO/TS 37008 and cover:

  • A review of discrimination and harassment 
  • How to recognize and respond appropriately to complaints

  • Preparing for interviews, drafting outlines/questions
