Handling Employment Investigations

Webinar: Handling Employment Investigations

From time to time, municipalities face the challenge of investigating the misconduct of an employee. Mistakes happen when employers aren’t trained to meticulously handle a situation, or haven’t been keeping in pace with updates in legislature, leading to often expensive setbacks and liability issues. How can municipalities prepare for such an intimidating undertaking?

Join LGA for this free webinar unpacking key legal and practical issues that arise during the investigation process, including Weingarten and Garrity rights, as well as due process at Loudermill meetings. Gain confidence in the often-asked questions of when to notify an employee of an investigation, what to get in writing, and how to find an investigator.

Become an expert in the process. Know what to keep confidential, what to expect in a witness’s statement, and when lawyers should be present. When moving forward with disciplinary actions, navigate the challenges of progressive discipline and how employment-disciplinary proof affects the actions you can take.

Presenting is Shon K. Worner, a senior associate from Campbell, Durrant, Beatty, Palombo & Miller, PC., practicing in the areas of labor and employment, education, civil service, and municipal law.
