About the Webinar
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the ways in which businesses run and there is still some time before it is ‘business as usual’. Most employers are grappling with new ways of working, with many of their employees working from home or in other unusual ways. However, it is clear that ‘business as usual’ issues can and do still arise. Thus, what should employers do if they become aware of an allegation of workplace harassment or violence? Global business lawyer Gail Rodgers draws on her extensive experience in virtual investigations to help you determine whether a remote investigation is the right step to take and what steps you should take if you decide to go forward with the investigation.
